Rigid state control, the subject 
of President Mather's speech to 
the faculty on Monday, was one 
of the principal objections of Phi 
Beta Kappa to accepting the Uni- 
versity as a chapter last year. 

At a press conference on Tues- 
day, Mr. Mather said that the com- 
mission control he is fighting is 
"exactly what Phi Beta Kappa ob- 
jected to." He said that the repre- 
sentatives of the national honor 
society were aware of this control 
"after two days on campus." 

Other objections of the national 
honor society to acceptance of the 
university were lack of adminis- 
trative organization, library inade- 
quacy, shortage of classroom space, 
and insufficient faculty participa- 
tion in administration. 

Some Objections Corrected 

Since the university's rejection, 
the appointment of a new provost 
and a Dean of Arts and Sciences 
has corrected the organizational 
situation, Mr. Mather said. An 
allocation of $88,000 for a new li- 
brary building to be begun next 
year, and current construction vf \ 
a Liberal Arts classroom building 
should help to eliminate two 
further objections. 

Faculty Meetings Now Useful 

The President explained that by 
holding monthly faculty meetings 
he has increased faculty participa- 
tion in administration since taking 
office. Past presidents, he said, did 
not call faculty meetings because 
hamstrung by "clerical control" 
of the Personnel Commission, they 
were unable to take action on any 
faculty decisions or recommenda- 
tions. 

Phi Beta Kappa elections come 
up again in 1958, and an applica- 
tion by the university would have 
to be filed this Fall.

Goding, Goldberg 
To Head Languages 

Topping the list of eleven sum- 
mertime UM faculty promotions is 
the elevation of Dr. Stowell C. 
Goding and Dr. Maxwell H. Gold- 
berg to department head* 

Dr. Goding replaces Dr. Charles 
N. Fraker, who retired in August, 
as head of romance languages, 
while Dr. Goldberg succeeds Dr. 
Frank Prentice Rand as boss of 
the English department. 

Dr. Rand, who relinquished his 
position in favor of a heavier 
teaching schedule, retains his title 
of full professor. 

Carl A. Keyser was named full 
professor of mechanical engineer- 
ing. Jumping from assistant to full 
professor of philosophy was Dr. 
Clarence Shute. 

Raised from assistant to assoc- 
iate professor were Eliot D. Allen 
in English, Kenneth D. Cashin in 
chemical engineering, and Sidney 
Schop-ffler in economics. 

Instructors Promoted 
Four instructors were elevated 
to assistant professorships. They 
were Armand J Costa, mechanical 
engineering; Dwight E. Erliek. 
psychology; Robert A. Potash, his- 
tory; Bertram G. Woodland, geol- 
ogy and mineralogy. 

Dr. Coding joined the university 
staff in 1927, two years after grad- 
uating from Dartmouth. He took 
his A.M. from Harvard, his Ph.D. 
from the VnivcrOy ,,f WfaCOftsfo. 
Past president of the New Eng- 
land Modem Language Assn., he 
has had several articles published 
(CnvtivHPfl on pngp 4), 



Definite Policy Deals 
With UM Honesty 

For the first time the university 
handbook certains a specific state- 
ment concerning honesty and dis- 
ciplinary policy. 

The statement reads, "Honesty 
in all phases of academic work is 
expected of every student." Speci- 
fically this means that every quiz 
and examination answer must be 
the student's own and all papers 
must be original and give proper 
footnote credit. 

Students May Appeal Case 
Penalties are as follows: For 
the first offense the student will 
be dropped from the course with a 
failing mark and be placed on dis- 
ciplinary probation. Second offend- 
ers will be dropped from the uni- 
versity with no possibility of re- 
turning. 

Instructors will send their 
charges to Dean Hopkins, Chair- 
man of the Disciplinary Commit- 
tee. The accused student may ap- 
peal to a student-faculty Appeals 
Committee within 24 hours after 
the instructor's charge is received. 
Faculty To Tell Students 
Dean Hopkins outlined the new 
policy, a product of extensive re- 
search by a student-faculty inves- 
tigating committee, to the entire 
faculty at their first meeting 
Tuesday and asked their coopera- 
tion in pres. i 'ng it to the stu- 
dents. 

The conclusions of the commit- 
tee were reviewed and accepted hy 
the Student Senate last Spring and 
comprise the first definite policy 
concerning honesty the university 
has ever had.

this purpose. 

In the speech division, however, 
there is a clear movement toward 
departmental status and "we are 
likely to witness slightly expanded 
offerings in journalism " 

Faces Two Problems 

Dr. Goldberg said he had en- 
tered the headship on a "develop- 
mental mandate," and the future 
plans of his department are con- 
cerned with two responsibilities. 

They are "to meet the imperious 
demands of sheer increases in the 
number of students at the univer- 
sity in the next few years, and to 
meet the equally urgent challenge 
of producing qualitative results 
worthy of the state university of 
our Commonwealth." 

The English department will be 
encouraged not only to strengthen 
their teaching, continued Dr. Gold- 
berg, but will be urged on to "pro- 
ductive scholarship" and other 
types of creative professional con- 
tributions which will carry over to 
the subject matter being taught. 
Was U.M. Grad 

Dr. Goldberg brings to his new 
job extensive educational experi- 
ence and professional recognition 
on several fronts. A "homegrown 
product", he has been teaching on 
campus since 192fi, when only a 
sophomore here. 

Except for a sabbatical leave in 
1951, and his M.A. and Ph.D. de- 
grees at Yale from 1938-83, Dr. 
Goldherg has taught and been con- 
tinually active in extra-curricular 
activities on campus. 

For 12 years lie was advisor to 
the ('oil' (nan, and the In<le.r, and 
was primarly responsible for the 
birth of the Quart* rhi, also known 
as "Goldberg's baby." 

A member of Adelphia in his 
undergraduate days, and then a 
Yale 1'niversity scholar. Dr. Gold- I

INTERVIEW HAS 
LIGHTER SIDE 

Besides the topic of President 
J. Paul Mather's speech to the 
faculty, there were lighter sub- 
jects under discussion at the 
Collegian's press conference with 
the president, Provost Shannon 
McCune , and Frederick Cahill, 
Dean of the School of Arts and 
Sciences. 

When the new provost was ask- 
ed what he thought of U^ass., 
he replied, "I'm going to be talk- 
ing in a convocation speech on the 

99r«r4 T VinT-ip. vaitV.- »' *f I 

I'll give you my impressions of 
this place as a freshman. -.many of 
them much better than I thought 
they were going to be." 

Cahill answered the question of 
replacing himself as head of the 
Government department by say- 
ing, "There never was a head of 
the . . . department ... I just acted 
that way and convinced a lot of 
I*-opie." UM, howe\,j, v. .11 have 
one appointed in a year, for the 
first time. 

President Mather commented 
that adminstratively he would 
withdraw any review of the 
Quarterly from his office this se- 
mester. To the new editorial staff 
he said, "Go away, blaze away at 
it. 1 don't care what you do with 
it. I mean that." 

When the question of Spring 
Day's future arose, he said, 
"that's up to the provost." McCune 
laughed and said, "I was'nt there 
at the time" 

The president replied that the 
faculty would always be opposed 
"an anarchistic rebellion against 
authority." He would not author- 
ize it last year but said . . . "go 
(Continued on page 4) 



against the state legislature Mon- 
day. 

In a talk before the faculty and 
at a press conference in his office, 
h( maintained that the present 
method of hiring and paying pro- 
fessors forces UM into "an in- 
creasingly inferior and decaying 
personnel situation ..." 

"Best Minds" Work On Bill 

The president said that with the 
help of "the best legal minds ob- 
tainable" a bill has been prepared 
which will end the power over the 
university now held by the State 
Commission on Personnel. The 
Commission now dictates hiring 
policy to all state institutions. 

This "clerical omniscience", said 
the president, is a "chronic and 
malignant disease" consisting of 
"politically expedient controls" 
which have hamstrung the school 
so that it has become more and 
nore djthcult to compete with 
other schools in the acquisition of 
competent faculty. «,«- ~"T* 

1918 Laws Hurt Self-Control 

In 1918, explained the president, 
a Constitutional Convention re- 
organized 18 departments of the 
state, including the university, so 
that personnel problems came un- 
der the control of Civil Service 
Clerks "who have no experience in 
either education or educational ad- 
ministration." 

This system permitted the com- 
mission, operating 100 miles away 
from campus, to reduce salaries or 
eliminate positions, even though 
the State House had allocated 
funds for the liquidated or down- 
graded jobs. 

Furthermore, Mather pointed 
out at the press conference Tues- 
day afternoon, all professors or 
instructors start "at a minimum 
(and) they're all guaranteed five 
years of successive increments, 
whether they're good, bad, or in- 
different ... so that a man can 
come onto our staff, and as long 
as he's a nice man ... he can stay 
for five years and . . . get the 
same salary increases as the best 
research man in the department." 
Mediocrity of Ideas 

"This I claim is mediocrity . . . 
The process of competing for ideas 
is just as im(>ortant as competing 
for television gisn 

"Mediocrity is a function of two 
things: One, "summarized Mather, 
"we can't Mr* men competitiveh 
on the outside market at anything 
hut the minimlm established by 
this hoard or this commission; 
(Second) then after we tret them 

they take automatic increments

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1955 



This We Believe 

The college newspaper shall be vocal, not 
vociferous. This means a forth-right state- 
ment of the facts. This includes an investi- 
gation of both sides and the background of 
the story. In other words, we should know 
not only what we want but also why we 
haven't been able to get it up to now. 

The college newspaper shall be free. How- 
ever there shall be a recognition of the res- 
ponsibility of the newspaper to the college 
community. This is true even though the 
newspaper is the responsibility of the college 
community. There is a necessary co-opera- 
tive obligation which allows neither to be 
free of the other. 

The college newspaper shall be respon- 
sible. There shall be no shackles upon its 
powers and rights except a deep sense of res- 
ponsibility. However, there is another tacit 
limit^that of the Bill of Rights. 

Above all the college newspaper shall be 
constructive. It shall never be a griper's jour- 
nal. If we think that the food is terrible or 
the sidewalks and roads are disgraceful, we 
shall try to find out if anything is being done. 
Chances are that the powers-that-be already 
have something in the works and that im- 
provements are only a question of time. This 
means that the paper shall be more crusad- 
ing, push officials instead of accepting ex- 
cuses. 

On th« other hand, the newspaper shall 
not be a glad-hander, seeing only the bright 
side of life. The paper shall be aware of situa- 

nz that exist which are not good and which 



Be Thankful 

by John Rosenburg 

A lot of planning and hard work has been 
done to make your freshman week one from 
which you can gain a lot. In future years 
you will often remember the fun you had 
and the friends you met during your first 
week in collge. 

But the emphasis as you start your col- 
lege careers is definitely on the social and 
lighter side of college life. 

There will be many house meetings and 
class meetings to get organized, meet your 
classmates, and be welcomed by us who have 
been here before. We hope you will also join 
the fun at all of the rallies, dances, sports 
events, etc., which have been planned for 
your enjoyment. Perhaps the biggest event 
in the next ten days will be the Freshman 
Interdormitory Song Competition in the 
cage. Members of the various music groups 
on campus will be on hand at your house 
meetings to teach you the university songs 
and help you to come out on top in the com- 
petition between the dorms. 

In past years, many dorms have organized 
their own bands to play while en route to the 
cage. These bands also come in handy when 
the freshmen dances are held in your dorm. 

What ever you do, don't mis any of the 
co-ed activities. This is your chance to get 
acquainted with ail your classmates when 
there is no interference from unwanted up-

should be improved. 

We intend to do all this, to be realistic but 
subservient, to be co-operative but not apolo- 
getic, to be crusading and forceful but not 
given over to sensationalism. 



ever hold your peace ! 



While you're getting acquainted with the 
campus, don't forget the faculty. They're 
here for your benefit too. They, along with 
the administration, are M interested in your 
welfare as the rest of us. 



OUR PURPOSE 

The CcUepan is the. official newspaper of 
the undergraduate body of the University of 
Massac huetts and the Stockbridge School of 
Agriculture. Our chief purpose is to report 
news-worthy activities in the news columns 
that are Tree from opinion and bias and as 
lecurate as possible. On the editorial pages 
»ve express student and faculty opinion about 
;he news. 

We also offer students an opportunity to 
acquire newspaper experience and skill in 
writing as well as a knowledge of the busi- 
ness and commercial aspects of newspaper 
work. 

We provide the public with information 
about the University, support its best tradi- 
tions, and record its history. 

OUR POLICIES 

All act'ons of the staff shall be designed 
to further the ends of a press which is both 
free and responsible. 

The right of a newspaper to attract and 
lold its readers is restricted by nothing but 
i consideration of public welfare. 

Good faith with the reader is the founda- 
tion of all journalism worthy of the name. 

A newspaper should not publish material 
affecting the moral character or reputation of 
a person or organization without giving the 
accused opportunity to be heard. 

All letters to the editor shall be published 
provided that they do not contain any libel- 
ous material or material that is in bad taste 
or are not excessively long. 

We shall support all worthwhile campus 
activities and causes through our news and 
feature columns and do everything within 
our power to promote and sponsor all activ- 
ities in the best interests of the community. 

The motto of the Collegian shall be "A 
Wnt and Responsible Press." 

A.D.S. 



WELCOME! 

Education is the principal business of the 
town of Amherst and all of its citizens are 
very proud of the two fine institutions of 
learning located here: Amherst College and 
the University of Massachusetts. Local gov- 
ernment, business and professional enter- 
prises all are directed towards maximum 
service to the educational programs. We 
have had long experience in this field and be- 
lieve we have achieved an understanding and 
spirit of cooperation of which all may well 
be proud. 

It is a pleasure to welcome back all re- 
turning students of the college and univer- 
sity and particularly to extend greetings and 
welcome .to students who are coming for their 
first year. We know you will find Amherst 
a delightful place to spend what has been 
termed "the four best years of one's life." 

Also we extend greetings to the parents 
of students. We understand how important 
to the student is the support and influence of 
the home. We hope you will visit Amherst 
on every opportunity and assure you of our 
earnest desire to make you welcome on every 
such occasion.

We Are Back Too 

With everyone everywhere say- 
ing hello, we hardly know what to 
do with ourselves. It's too late to 
My goodbye to the seniors, and too 
early to wave so long to fiunkouts. 

It's hideously repetitious for us 
to greet the frosh; nonetheless, we 
wish them the best for their next 
four years. 

We must be charitable, letting 
glowing good will light up the 
campus, because it's a bit too early 
in the semester to jump on the 
easy prey of school. 

Despite all this, we write a col- 
umn. We do it partly because in 
less than a year C & S have 
reached the fringe area of becom- 
ing a minor campus tradition. 

Last year we started out by 
urging the cheerleaders to show up 
officially at basketball games, and 
since then we've tried to put the 
compliments and the slams in the 
right places, all of it aimed to 
create a better school. 

This is our second tour of duty 
on these editorial pages. It is an 
awesome responsibility to put your 
opinion on paper, in front of 4000 
critical gazes. 

Yet, it is a marvellous oppor- 
tunity. We are able to try to con- 
tribute; we are able to learn the 
vital craft of journalism. For these 
things we are grateful. And to the 
responsibility we hope to be faith- 
ful. 

Now we begin a new year. For 
us we start under those same two 
initials which mystified parts of 
campus iast year. We said then 
and we say it now, "C" does not 
stand for Collegian, and "S" stands 
not for staff. 

But beyond that, we'j-e not 
squealing. C & S

Dean Helen Curtis 
Boosts Publicity 
Editors on Campus 

Miss Curtis, Dean of Women, has 
suggested that each women's resi- 
dence choose a publicity chairman, 
who would then report to the Col- 
legian any interesting information, 
which would be in the general cam- 
pus interest. 

Barring the fact that we some- 
times do not have enough room for 
all the news, we think this is a 
very helpful suggestion. 

We would not want it to become 
a gossip sheet, nor do we desire 
to become a medium for items of 
no importance. But, as Dean Curtis 
points out, this would be a most 
valuable asset to the Collegian, in 
finding out things before they hap- 
pen. No one likes to find out that 
he missed some function which was 
a great success. 

To make the position of publicity 
chairman easier, the Collegian has 
obtained printed forms which may 
be filled out with a minimum of 
error. These should be very use- 
ful to any clubs, organizations, or 
people wishing to hold dances and 
the like. These forms may be ob- 
tained in the Collegian office. 

It is hoped that each residence 
M campus will look into this idea 
more thoroughly. Call at the office, 
if interested. 



The Right to Vote 

In a very short while, elections 
will be held for student govern- 
ment. The. positions to he filled, 
and thi people who are to fill them 
should ho of interest to every por- 
son on campus. Those tltettd will 
have a great deal to say about 
how your money is spent, and in 
what manner your university will 
be run. It is not only your right, it 
is your responsibility. V. 



It has been a long time since 
a press conference worth the name 
took place on campus, so the one 
held Tuesday in President .Mather's 
South College office was an illumin- 
ating and even exciting introduc- 
tion to the mechanics of the mass 
interview. 

Unlike the most famous of press 
sessions, the President of the 
United States' weekly meetings 
with the nation's newsmen, this 
was "mass" in two directions. 
About twelve reporters were 
throwing questions at three men, 
including Mather and his two new 
aides, Provost Shannon McCune 
a.nd Dean of Arts and Sciences 
Fred V. Cahill. 

Cahill stole the show, even while 
he talked the least of his compa- 
triots. Quietly letting his wit sidle 
across the mahogany table which 
served as a barricade for the ad- 
ministrators, his comments were 
often greeted with laughter, or as 
the Congressional Record would 
print it, (Laughter). 

Mather's Freedom Bill . . . 

The president, at first seemincr 
slightly nervous (he's a tightly 
wound spring most of the time 
anyway), did most of the early 
talking. I started the conference 
by asking him to comment on his 
speech opening his drive for a 
Freedom Bill (see page 1), and Mr. 
Mather spoke almost a naif-hour 
with only unimportant interrup- 
tion. 

The president relaxed after a 
while, and he and his assistants 
toyed with an occasional moment 
of easy banter, sometimes between 
themselves, sometimes including 
members of the press delegation. 

Provost McCune, who's been 
here for less than two months, 
seemed relaxed enough behind the 
table. Since he's new on campus 
he was the most carefully watched 
of the men at the meeting. He lit 
his matches for his pipe on the 
soles of his shoes, and boomed 
one hearty laugh which rocked the 
volume level of the tape recorder, 
but mostly he only added a com- 
ment here and there to Mather's 
remarks. 

... Cahill's Dour Wit . . . 

Cahill's first scene-stealer was 
in reply to a query which centered 
on his attitude toward the pro- 
posed bill. Turning his head away 
from the wiry Mather, who sat in 
the middle with Cahill to his left, 
the new Dean said dourly: "111 
quote the president: 'God is on our 
side.' He must be because we're 
right." 

The use of the quotation from 
Mather's Monday faculty speech 
seemed to me slightly ironic. At 
any rate, his comment was greet- 
ed with laughter, including the 
president's. 

Later, when Cahill was asked 
who would replace him as head of 
the government department, more 
(Laughter) went onto the tape be- 
ing handled by Professor Ray- 
mond Wyman of the Audio-Visual 
office, when he answered: "There 
never was a head of the govern- 
ment department ... I just acted 
that way and convinced a lot of 
people." 

. . . Quarterly's Freedom . . . 

Not just laughter and not just 
talk about the Freedom Bi'l was 
the subject of the 90 minute meet- 
ing. Last year's Quarterly case, in- 
volving the suspension and subse- 
quent presidential review of the 
magazine, came to an end when 
Mather said: "I'm about to write 
a letter to the Quarterly and . . . 
withdraw any review from my of- 
fice. Now that you've got a new 
editorial staff, go away (Laugh* 
to), Haze away at it."

ABBEYS FACE LIFTED; 
BOWKER MODERNIZED 

CONSTRUCTION CUTS CAMPUS AS WALLS RISE 

Construction has obviously begun on two major additions to the 
physical plan of the university. 

A million dollar classroom building, to be named Machmer Hall 
after a former dean, is going up just north of North College, and across 
the street the long delayed Student Union building is also under con- 
struction. 

Bowker Is Pink 
Both buildings are scheduled to be completed by next September. 

The renovation of Bowker Aud- 
itorium remains incomplete. Uni- 
versity officials expect the audi- 
torium, now painted pink, to be 
finished by about the middle of 
October.

separate it from the rest of the 
university were removed. Now the 
old wooden fire escapes have been 
taken down and much interior 
work has been completed. New 
curtains, showers, and beds have 
been added and a great deal of 
painting has been done. However 
plans for enlargement of the rec 
room have been temporarily de- 
layed because of the recent flood. 

The few overflow freshman 
women who temporarily occupy 
the Abbey's first floor cannot be 
aware that they live in what was 
once the least attractive women's 
dorm on campus. 

Abbey Is Still Safe 

NOTE-Removal of the old 
wooden fire escapes from the 
Abbey does not wi any way make 
that dorm less safe. That which 
has been removed has not been 
used for fire drills in quite some 
time. 



The Roister Doisters have a new 
home, and the Operetta Guild has 
another Rodgers and Hammerstein 
hit to present. 

The RDs, university dramatics 
group, will move into newly-re- 
modeled Bowker Auditorium for 
The Mad Woman of Chaillot, 
their first production of the year. 
The play will be given on Novem- 
ber 18 and 19. 

According to Director Doric Al- 
viani, the Operetta Guild is the 
first collegiate group to obtain 
production rights to Rodgers and 
Hammerstein's South Poct'/ic,and 
will present the musical in March. 

Modwoman,by Jean Giraudoux, 
will be directed by Doris Abram- 
son, and the set designer is Henry 
Peirce. Both are faculty members 
of the speech and drama depart- 
ment. 

Because of the success of the 
Operetta Guild in presenting 
Carousel last year, South Pacific 
will be its second Rodgers and 
Hammerstein production. 

The talented composers were 
awarded honorary degrees at UM 
last year during the run of "Car- 
ousel". The team was honored as 
representatives of deserving men 
in the field of arts. 




PROGRESS, SLOWLY BUT SURELY, takes place on the construc- 
tion of the Student Union building, just East of North College. 
The new Union, expected to be ready for use in 1957, will house 
offices of all university clubs and activities, and will have a large 
auditorium. — Foleyfoto 



Chorale, Statesmen Policies Revised; 
Workshop to Present One- Act Operas 



Doric Alviani, head of the music 
department, has announced new 
program policies for both the 
Chorale and the Statesmen. The 
University will also have an Opera 
Workshop, brand new to the music 
organizations already on campus. 

According to Alviani, this reor- 
ganization will give students who 
are musically inclined, wider ex- 
perience in the modern trends de- 
n eloping in colltgl and universi- 
ties throughout the country. 

Chorale members will combine 
music and drama under the MUM 
direction, becoming part of a trend 
called "musical theatre". This form 
of entertainment was recently re- 
vived !>y Boston^! Borii Goldovsky, 
but was most popular during the 



17th and 18th century. 

The Statesmen's face-lifting, 
policy-wise, includes an enlarged 
repertoire and the inclusion of pi- 
ano accompaniment. 

The newly-organized Opera 
Workship will begin operations on 
campus by presenting one-act 
operas in English. Future plans 
also include co-operative presenta- 
tions with other colleges, at home 
and away. Alviani hopes that the 
workr,nop eventually will become a 
community project. 

The fate of the Symphony Sing- 
ers, a group formed last year to 
j appear with the Springfield Sym- 
phony, depends upon the amount 
of student enthusiasm and re- 
sponse this year.

Revelers Honorary-Service 
Group to Help Freshmen 



Freshmen are the class to watch 
this year. 

Under the leadership of the 
"Revelers" new honorary-service 
group on campus, frosh talent will 
be manifesting itself in every area 
of campus activity, and the year- 
lings' social events will be the talk 
of every class. 

Revelers, a group of six men 
and six women from the upper 
classes, were chosen from among 
sixty-two applicants who respond- 
ed to the call for volunteers when 
the new group was announced at 
Honors Convo last Spring. 

Mrs. Cartwright Originator 

Mrs. Madeline Cartwright, Crab- 
tree's housemother, and the origi- 
nator of the idea of Revelers, ex- 
plained that the purpose of the 
group is to "help the Freshmen 
to enjoy more recreation, more 
entertainment, and a greater out- 
let for their talents by providing 
them with enthusiastic upperclass 
leadership." 

Revelers will provide assistance 
and direction for frosh recreation- 
al activities. Their first project 
will be to scout for and prepare 
four talent numbers to be included 
on the program of the annual fresh- 
man Interdorm Sing. They will 
also be responsible for planning an 
alternate activity for the Co-Rec 
sports day to be used if it should 
rain on the 17th. 

A new freshman activity, the 
Interdorm Skit competition on 
Oct. 22. will come under the 
leadership of the Revelers, and 
they will also guide two special 
Frosh Frolic nights on Nov. 5 and 
Jan. 14. The group will work cl<> 
ly with the Freshman Tnterdorm- 
itory Council. 

Members of Revelers are Robert 
Brown, John Enos, Edward Lee, 
Wilbert Lepkowski, Raymond 
I/onghi. Robert Sampson, Nella 
C,rook3, Muriel Daniels, Marilyn 
Gross, Judy Saulnier, Elaine Sieg- 
el, and Ix>is Toko. 

Chosen By Special Committee 

They were chosen by a special 
student-fnculty committee, after 
the Student Activities Committee 
unanimously approved the idea 
last Spring. Mrs. Cartwright, feel- 
ing a distinct need for a group of 
this kind, enlisted the aid of Mar- 
ilyn Gross and Carol Clifford in 
presenting the plan ti Studt nt Ac- 
tivities. 

Revelers, which is expected to 
be a permanent organization, re- 
quires that its members have aver- 
age scholarship, be enthusiastic 
about the project, and have shown 
talent in past campus activity 

Among the dozen members, there 
are two sophomores, five jun>< 
and five seniors. Enos and Longhi 
are the sophs — with the former in 



his second semester. 

Juniors include Brown, Sampson, 
Lee, Miss Crooks and Miss Gross. 
Lepkowski, along with the misses 
Daniels, Saulnier, Toko, and Sie- 
gal, form the senior crew. 

The first assignment for the 
group involves the thinking cap. 
They must meditate on the prob- 
lem of what to do if it rains on 
Co-Rec sports day. The Revelers 
had their first meeting at the Stu- 
dent Leaders' Convo, and only one 
member, football player Enos, was 
unable to attend. 



Polio Threatlsolatet 
Mt.Holyoke Women 

The serious epidemic of polio- 
myelitis centered in eastern Massa- 
chusetts has also left its mark in 
the Amherst-Northampton vicinity. 

Although only two cases were 
reported in Amherst, So. Hadley 
Falls, Chicopee, Northampton, ami 
Westover Air Force Base have a 
notable number of polio victims. 

Unlike many Greater Boston 
communities, public schools in this 
area will open on schedule as will 
the four universities and colleges. 
Mount Holyoke Girls To Hibernate 

However, Mount Holyoke Col- 
lege in South Hadley has issued a 
letter of warning to parents of 
incoming students containing pre- 
cautionary rules which may be re- 
laxed if Immediate danger is over 
by September 19th when the 
Freshmen arrive. 

In a Monday interview with 
Dean Robinson in South Hadley, it 
was learned that students may not 
enter school without a physician's 
certification. After arrival at the 
college they may do no shopping 
nor attend movies in any of the 
surrounding communities. Visits to 
all other New England colleges 
are also prohibited and Mount 
Holyoke women may have no visit- 
ors at the college. 

Dean Robinson said that the 
school's president, Roswell G. 
Ham, deemed it wiser to extend 
this advance warning to the incom- 
ing students rather than impose 
these surprising restrictions after 
their arrival. 

Mount Holyoke administrators 
and the resident physician felt 
that there is much danger in 
bringing people from heavy Massa- 
chusetts polio areas into contact 
With people from the western and 
southern United States. 

UM Takes No Precautions 

The University of Massachusetts 
and Amherst College, after con- 
sultations With Dr. R. Sheldon 
Clapp, Chairman of the Amherst 
Hoard of Health, are imposing no 
precautionary regulations. 



Valley Colleges 
Start Study of 
Co-opProgram 

A program of cooperative edu- 
cational activities among UM, 
Mount Holyoke, Smith and Am- 
herst colleges will be the subject 
of study this year by a committee 
composed of one representative 
from each of the four schools. 

Prof. Bruce Morris of the Econ- 
omics dept. will represent the uni- 
versity on the committee. This 
project is being made possible by 
a three-year grant totalling 
$30,000 which has been made for 
this purpose by the Fund for the 
Advancement of Education. 
$6000 Annually 

According to the terms of the 
award, the fund will grant $6000 
annually for the next two years 
to enable faculty members of the 
four institutions to study methods 
by which they can extend or ini- 
tiate cooperative programs. At 
present, a number of students from 
each of the colleges are enrolled 
in courses offered by one of the 
others, and several faculty mem- 
bers are conducting courses in 
more than one college. 

Prof. Morris, who will teach 
only part-time this semester to 
work on the committee, said that 
there are several areas where co- 
operation would be beneficial to 
the university. He cited expensive 
fields of study in which there are 
few majors, such as astronomy and 
classical studies. University stu- 
dents wishing to major in such 
fields could use the more extensive 
facilities of the other colleges un- 
der such a cooperative set-up. 
Ed Courses Here 

According to Morris, the com- 
mittee will probably consider the 
utilization of liberal arts gradu- 
ates from the four institutions foi 
teaching. The graduates would en- 
roll here at the university and be- 
gin to teach, taking a minimum 
of education courses. 

Cooperation, when initiated, 
could extend to lectures, concerts 
and the like. Also, Mr. Morris 
said, the possibility of releasing a 
joint calendar for the four schools 
will be discussed. 

To Face Problems 

Prof. Morris expects that there 
will be a number of problems 
confronting the group, including 
the differences in tuition at the 
various colleges, as well as t Trans- 
portation and scheduling problems. 
It will be the work of the com- 
mittee, be said, to overcome these 
obstacles and plan a workable pro- 
gram.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1953 



Montovani Opens Concert 
Association Series This Year 






The University Concert Assoc- 
iation will present three "firsts" 
this season. 

The first concert of the season 
will be held on Tuesday, October 4, 
and will feature ManLovani on his 
first American tour. Mantovani 
and his "New Music" have broken 
many records over th° pist two 
years. 

On November 16 the university 
will play host to the Philharmonic 
Orchestra of London, conducted by 
Herbert von Karajan. The London 
Philharmonic is making its first 
American tour. 

The third concert on Feb. 7, 1956 
will be given by the Philharmonic 
Piano Quartet. 

The final attraction of the ser- 
ies, on March 19, will be the Roger 
Wagner Chorale, a group of thirty 
mixed voices and two pianists 
making their first transcontinental 
tour. 

SSO Not Scheduled 

"The aim of the concert assoc- 
iation," commented Doric Alviani, 
head of the University music de- 
partment, "is to pick the best art- 
ists in their fields." 

The Springfield Symphony Or- 
chestra, which was last year put 
"in residence" at the University, is 
not scheduled to appear this year. 

The reason for this, according to 
Mr. Alviani, is that the organiza- 
tion was minus a conductor, and 
thus could make only tentative en- 
gagements last March when thp 
University filled its roster of con- 
cert attractions. Had the Univer- 
sity accepted the Springfield Sym- 
phony tentatively, it possibly would 
have missed the opportunity to en- 
gage another attraction if the 
Symphony proved unable to fill the 
engagement.

members this year according to 
Provost Shannon McCune. 

On sabbatical leave from the 
speech department is Anthony W- 
Zaitz who will be working on his 
doctorate at the University ofWis- 
consin. 

Education professor Charles F. 
Oliver is also working toward his 
doctorate at the University of Wis- 
University of Connecticutt. 

Dr. Helen S. Mitchell, dean of 
the School of Home Economics, 
plans to visit Rome and the Near

grams being conducted by the food 
and agriculture program. She will 
also audit several courses at Har- 
vard while on leave from the uni- 
versity. 

Robert A. Fitzpatriek of the 
College of Agriculture will spend 
one semester completing course re- 
quirements for his doctors degree 
at Purdue. 

From the School of Engineer- 
ing, Walter W. Smith will study 
for a master of science degi*ee in 
television at Syracuse University. 



Field, Dean Curtis 
Address Upperclass 
Counselors Group 

A busy two days, popping with 
new ideas on improving dorm 
life, personally, intellectually, and 
culturally, is the agenda for the 
upperclass house counselors' work- 
shop. 

Chairman Sondra Patashnick 
will present Dean Curtis and Dr. 
William Field, who will talk on 
"Counseling". 

Such topics as developing per- 
sonal improvement, social compe- 
tence, and intellectual interests 
are included- 

Addresses by Mr. Cornish; 
Mona Harrington, Women's Af- 
fairs Committee; Marylee Boyle, 
Judiciary Board; Lois' Toko, Sen- 
ate, are on the program. 

House Chairmen this year are 
Barbara Hitchcock and Ingeborg 
Harismatin, Abbey; Sondra Pat- 
ashnick, Hamlin; Mona Harring- 
ton, Knowlton; and Alice Trocchi, 
Leach House. 

What cancelled the idea, he retort- 
ed, was the red-tape caused by the 
"little men" again (the Commis- 
sion on Personnel in Boston — the 
civil service clerks). They did not 
see fit to give UMass. enough sta- 
tistical clerks, for one thing.

New College of Agriculture 
Revamps, Adds Departments 



The former School of Agriculture 
and Horticulture became the Col- 
lege of Agriculture on July 1, in 
accordance with a ruling by the 
Board of Trustees of the univer- 
sity. 

Three new departments have been 
incorporated within the newly des- 
ignated Oilege. One, the depart- 
ment of Dairy and Animal Science, 
is a consolidation of two previous 
departments, Dairy Industry and 
Animal Husbandry. 

Has 13 Depart vents 

Another of the new 'u-partments, 
Agricultural Engineering, was for- 
merly a part of the School of En- 
gineering, and a third component, 
Agricultural Communications, has 
been added to the reorganization. 

The new College now consists of 
thirteen departments. Its instruc- 
tional program includes a four- 
year bachelor of science course, a 
two-year vocational course in the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture, 
and graduate studies. 

Includes Service Agencies 

Integrated with these instruc- 
tional units will be the Experi- 
ment Station, the College's research 
branch, the Control or Regulatory 
Service, and the Cooperative Ex- 
tension Service, an agency special- 
izing in agricultural, home econo- 
mics, and youth education in the 
Commonwealth. 

Prof. Denzel J. Hankinson, for- 
merly in charge of Dairy Industry, 
will head the new department of 
Dairy and Animal Science. Gilbert 
E. Mottla has been appointed to 
direct the department of Agricul- 
tural Communications, which han- 
dles publications, news releases, 
&and educational films. As yet no 
head of the Agricultural Engi- 
neering department has been ap- 
pointed. 



Rice Retires 

Dr. V. A. Rice, formeidy head 
of the An Hus department, has re- 
tired to accept a position as Head 
of Instruction at the U. of North 
Carolina. 

New appointments in Prof. 
Hankinson's department include 
Frank E. Potter, assistant profes- 
sor, and John L. Hobart and Verne 
A. Adams, both instructors. Wil- 
liam J. Lord, a fruit specialist 
has been added to the staff of the 
Cooperative Extension service. 



Former Govt. Prof 
New Administrator 

Author, professor, and now 
administrator is Dr. Fred B. Ca- 
ll ill, newly appointed dean of the 
School of Arts and Sciences. Dr. 
Cahill merits his triple title with 
a book on constitutional law, pub- 
lished in 1952; his teaching career 
— Professor of Government hei-e 
since 1953; and now hi3 current 
position as dean. 

He recieved his BA and MA 
degrees from the University of 
Nebraska where he was a Phi 
Beta Kappa. In 1941, he obtained 
his Ph. D. from Yale University. 
Since then he has taught princi- 
pally at the University of Oregon 
and at Yale, with time out for two 
interruptions with the Army In- 
telligence. 

In his new role as Dean, Dr. 
Cahill won't be able to carry a 
heavy teaching role, if any. 

Although Dr. Cahill and his 
wife are both non-New England-

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1935 



Provost McCune 
Starts at New Post 

Plans Open Office Appointment Time 
For Students to Deal With UM Affairs 



by Mona Harrington 

Provost Shannon McCune is go- 
ing to be a very busy man accord- 
ing to an 11 item administrative 
outline of the duties of a provost 
called Responsibilities of Position. 

Generally, said the genial new- 
Provost his job is to be "a person 
who stays close at home dealing 
with everyday activities on cam- 
pus." 

An experiment in "dealing with 
everyday activities", will be a peri- 
od of two hours a week, Tuesdays 
from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., which Mr. 
McCune will keep free of appoint- 
ments so that anyone can drop in 
at his South College office to dis- 
cuss problems at hand. 

No Change for Change Sake 

Asked if he anticipated any 
changes in organization incorpor- 
ated from his experience at other 
schools, the provost made it very 
clear his belief that all change 
must grow from a definite need 
within a school. 

He suggested that student-fac- 
ulty committees to review curricu- 
lum and other academic areas 
would be an excellent method of 
studying and introducing changes 
in the status quo. 

It is his impression that such a 
move would be facilitated on this 
campus by what he calls the very 
"alive faculty" who recognize the 
need for constant change and pro- 
gress. 

McCune Asian Authority 

Mr. McCune's own field is Asian 
affairs with which he has been 
closely affiliated since his birth. 
He was bom in Korea, where his 
father was a missionary and spent 
his childhood there. Korea was the 
subject of a thesis for his doctor- 
ate which he received at Clark. 

He spent the war years doing 
economic intelligence work in India 
and China. In 1950 and 51 he 
served as deputy director of the 

Dean Okays Cars 
For UMies Over 21 

Freshmen and Sophomores who 
are 21 years old may register cars 
on campus. The new ruling by the 
university's central administration 
was released by Robert S. Hopkins, 
Dean of Men. 

The university acted on a re- 
commendation from the Student 
Senate's Committee on Traffic 
and Parking. The matter had pre- 
viously been brought to the Sen- 
ate's attention by freshmen and 
sophomore veterans, who felt that 
they should be allowed cars on 
campus. 

President J. Paul Mather had 
stated that parking facilities and 
road capacities in the area are not 
sufficient to permit all fresmen 
and sophomores to register cars. 

The only exceptions, allowed, 
pertaining to minors, are those 
which involve serious physical dis- 
abilities- The University Health 
Service has recommended a relax- 
ation of the ruling in such cases. 



Far East Program Director of the 
ECA. In 1953 and 54 he spent as 
a Fulbright visiting professor at 
the University of Tokyo. 

He has taught special courses 
primarily in Asian affairs at many 
different colleges, but his longest 
teaching stints have been with 
Ohio State and Colgate where he 
was professor of geography from 
1947-55. He has an article in the 
Sept. issue of Harper's describing 
a book exchange program for Asia. 
Likes to Teach 

As for his personal plans at 
UM, Provost McCune doubts if he 
can carry a teaching assignment 
with his administrative duties. He 
hopes to lecture occasionally and 
also find time to continue his re- 
search work on Korea. 

He said, however, he must "case 
the joint" before planning too 
much. Then he added with a grin 
and a puff on his ever-present 
pipe, he would first of all have to 
revamp his language for UM coeds.

be made above the clerks who have 
"superceded," Mr. Mather said, 
"the powers of the legislature" is 
to the Commissioner on Adminis- 
tration and Finance, who may give 
the school its most minor requiiv- 
ment but not anything higher, no 
matter how badly the higher post 
is needed. 

UM Losing Salary Struggle 
As a consequence, Mather said, 
UM faculty salaries are "getting 
further and further behind" those 
of other schools. "We're about on 
the average $1800 behind Connecti- 
cut on all levels. We're consider- 
ably below the midwestern land 
grants. 

The president maintained that 
the present bill prepared by him 
and his legal advisors would give 
hiring control to the school and 
its Board of Trustees, thus mak- 
ing UM directly responsible to the 
state legislature. 

"As Good As Michigan State" 

With this bill "I can build a 
Michigan State" — which Mather 
called the best landgrant school 
in the country — "here". 

Schools that have the kind of 
hiring freedom that Mather wants 
restored to the university "are 
now buying the best brains from 
the Ivy League. This is what I 
want to do some day." 

Newly-in-office Provost Shannon 
McCune stressed that the new bill 
in no way removed the control of 
the university from Beacon Hill. 
We're still a state university," he 
said. "Our funds are still going to 
come from the state legislature." 

"... When we're through," 
Mather reiterated, "I'll be more 
responsible to the legislature than 
I ever was. But boy, that's where 
I want to be responsible."

Producer to Teach 
TV Course Here 

A course on Television Program- 
ming and Production will be offered 
as Speech 63 this semester. It will 
be the first university course deal- 
ing solely with television. 

William Hodapp, a well-known 
TV producer and instructor, will 
teach the only section of the new 
subject on Saturday's, from 9 a.m. 
to 1 p.m. Hodapp must teach the 
course at that time because he 
must commute from New York to 
serve on the UM faculty. 

He is currently producing docu- 
mentary films for TV with the Ti- 
dent Films Co. of New York. 

He is the author of a text on 
programming and production, The 
Television Manual and has recently 
published his Television Actor's 
Manual. 

For his work in radio and tele- 
vision, Hodapp has received three 
Freedoms Foundations Awards, The 
Peabody Award, several Ohio State 
First Awards, Variety's Showman- 
ship Plaque, and the Howard 
Blakeslee Medical Award. 

He is a graduate of Indiana Uni- 
versity. 



New Master's Degree 

Starting in 195R the university 
will offer a new master of science 
degree in chemical engineering. 

The chemical engineering de- 
partment of the university is 
headed by Dr. Ernest E. Lindsey. 
a graduate of the Georgia School 
of Technology. 



where he will live at the Hotel 
Bellevue. From there he will push 
action on the Freedom Bill, which 
must be filed by December 5, 1955. 

The members of the commission 
which redtapes the university are 
probably already at work on the 
legislators, said Mather, but "the 
comforting thing is that the legis- 
lature's so mad and so tired now 
(at the end of a lengthy session) 
that nobody'll listen to anybody." 

"I'm going to give (the solons) 
two weeks to get home and get 
rested, and then I'm going to 
start seeing them." 

The proposed bill, said Mather, 
will not change the State consti- 
tution.

Upperclass Returnees Cut Freshmen 
Number as Total Enrollment Drops 



The UM will open its 92nd ac- 
ademic year with a total enroll- 
ment of 4100 students, 3650 of 
whom will be undergraduates. 
This is a drop from the 4322 who 
registered last September. 

The freshman class, especially, 
will be smaller than last year's, 
because larger numbers of -pper 
classmen are returning. The 
school lacks the classroom facili- 
ties to accommodate an expanded 
student body. 

Freshman men will number 



about 620, the coeds 380, totaling 
1UU0. Included are 200 veterans. 

The cut in the number of f resh- 
men was necessary despite a 35 
per cent increase in admission 
applications. Last year's frosh 
totaled 1140. 

Liberal arts enrollment is again 
expected to be heaviest, followed 
by engineering, science, business 

administration, agriculture, horti- 
culture, home economics, and 
physical education.

ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH 

Today I begin my second year of writing this column for 
Philip Morris Cigarettes. Once every week during the coming 
school year I will take up, without fear or favor, issues that 
inflame the minds and quicken the hearts of college students 
everywhere. I will grapple with such knotty questions as: "Is 
compulsory attendance the reflection of an insecure faculty?" 
and "Is the unmarried student obsolete?" and "Are room-mates 
sanitary?" 

While each week I make a bold assault upon these burning 
issues, I will also attempt to beguile you into smoking Philip 
Morris Cigarettes. Into each column I will craftily weave some 

A words in praise of Philip 

l^UierSPPle wilh^ Mon ; is - £ w * u extol « ?*r 

liquely, the benign mild- 
ness of Philip Morris's 
well-born tobacco, its 
soothing fragrance, its 
tonic freshness, its docile 
temperateness, its oh -so- 
welcome gentleness in this 
spiky and abrasive world 
of ours. 

For saying these kind 
things about their ciga- 
rettes, the Philip Morris 
Company will pay me 
money. This is the Ameri- 
can Way. This is De- 
mocracy. This is Enlight- 
ened Self Interest. This 
is the System that Made 

Our Country Great, and anybody who doesn't like it is 

MALADJUSTED. 

Perhaps it would be well in this first column of the year to 
tell you a little about myself. I am 36 years of age, but still 
remarkably active. I am squat, moon-faced, have all my teeth, 
and am fond of folk dancing and Lotto. My hobby is collecting 
mucilage. 

I first took up writing because I was too short to steal. Bare- 
foot Boy With Cheek was my maiden effort, and today, fourteen 
years later, I continue to 
write about college students. 
This is called "arrested de- 
velopment."

But I can't help it 
Though I am now in the 
winter of my life, the prob- 
lems of undergraduates still 
seem to me as pressing as 
ever. How to pursue a blaz- 
ing romance with exams 
coming up next Friday in 
physics, history and French ; 
how to convince your stingy 
father that life is a bitter 
mockery without a yellow 
convertible; how to subsist 
on dormitory food — these 
remain the topics that roil 
my sluggish blood.

And in this column from now until next June you will read 
of such things : of dating and pinning, of fraternities and sorori- 
ties and independents, of cutting and cramming, of athletes and 
average-raisers, of extra-and intra-curriculum, of textbooks and 
those who write them and those who sell them and those who 
read them and those who don't. 

And, slyly woven into this stirring tapestry, tho story of 
Philip Morris, America's gentle cigarette, in the handy Snap- 
Open pack, in king-size or regular, at prices all can afford.

/ 



Redmen Combination 




Here* • fcaclrfleld combination that oouM produce several victories this season. But University of 
Massachusetts coach Charlie Offerors* has first priority. These five co-eds are contestants for the 
University of MsMsrlumtti Miss Football and Homecoming Queen contest. At center is Barbara Axt. 
Englewood. W. J.; quarterback; Fay Hannibal. Oloucester. Mass.; right hah. Elaine Monroe. West Boylston.

Briggs Predicts .500 Season 
For Booters; Defense Strong 

Allen, Abrahamson Captain UM Soccer Team 



Strong defense and a young, 
speedy offense are the outstanding 
characteristics of the UMass var- 
sity soccer squad, which opens its 
season against Dartmouth on 
Sept. 23. 

Coach Larry Briggs, in his 
twenty-third season at the helm of 
the Redmen booters, will have his 
co-captains retu»riing at backfield 
posts. Bob Abrahamson and Mel 
Allen, two rugged seniors, perform 
at the right and left fullback posi- 
tions, respectively. 

First Rally Sept. 23 

The football season's first rally, 
featured by the Mettawampee 
Headdress ceremony and sponsored 
by Adelphia, will take place in the 
South Parking Lot area Friday, 
Sept. 23, at 7:30. 

The first rally, always the loud- 
est and biggest will have a spark- 
ling variety program which will in- 
clude speeches by coaches, players, 
and maybe special orations by Matt 
Sgan and Vic Keedy. See you there 
for sure. 



Horn, Lepkowski, Schwarz May 
Power Harriers to Best Year 



Powered by veterans Squeaky 
Horn and Wil Lepkowski, and 
propelled by sophomore coach Bill 
Footrick and soph star Pete 
Schwartz, the UMass cross coun- 
try team is looking forward to 
one of its biggest seasons. 

Two years ago, a veteran UM 
club won the New England har- 
riers championship with just such 
a combination. The experienced 
seniors, coupled with the outstand- 
ing youngsters brought home the 
bacon in three major meets. 

This season, Coach Footrick has 
the happy job of starting the time 
clock for Bob "Squeaky" Horn, 
who may turn out to be tne great- 
est of all Redmen hill-and-dalers. 
Owner of the UMass course re- 
cord, Squeaky compiled the ace 
record of winning 24 of 33 races 
he entered in all track sports last 
year. 

Wil Lepkowski Returns 

Co-captain with Horn is Wil 
Lepkowski, another three-year 
varsity veteran. Horn and Lep- 
kowski, usually one-two finishers, 
keep the UM victories coming 
easier with their consistency. 

Other lettermen returning in- 
clude Frank Power, Bob Brown, 
Dick Rickert, John Walsh, and 
Bill Welch. The sophomores, win- 
ners of all but one of their dual 
meets in '54, will add the neces- 
sary strength to Coach Footrick's 
crew, however. 

Pete Schwarz A Jewel 

Mercury-footed Pete schwarz 
may give Squeaky Horn a battle 



for top honors in his first tastes 
of varsity competition. Billy La- 
Belle is another fleet soph who 
should place well when racing 
with the big boys. 

Other promising newcomers to 
the varsity include Dick Prouty, 
Carl Baker, Dave Hjerpe, Dick 
Lyons, and Tom Flynn- 

The slate begins for both var- 
sity and fifth man harriers Octo- 
ber 1, when they engage rough 
Harvard in a dual meet at Cam- 
bridge. 

But the word is out in New 
England. Watch Connecticut for a 
sweep of the Yankee Conference, 
Connecticut Valley, and New Eng- 
land crowns.

Football Queen 
Contest Rolls On 

The five "Miss Football" finalists 
will begin their reign over the fall 
sports program next Friday night 
at the rally, with the contest win- 
ner being announced at Homecom- 
ing, October 15. 

Finalists in this biggest of all 
campus queen contests are Barbara 
Axt, Carol Bruinsma, Fay Hanni- 
bal, Elaine Monroe, and Marilyn 
Votano. 

Voting by the students and alum- 
ni has finished, and the ballots will 
be counted shortly. Until the 
crowning, the five girls will reign 
together at all football games and 
rallies. 

The winner of the contest enters 
the national campus queen derby 
sponsored by SPORT magazine, 
and will be Coed of the Month in 
COACH AND ATHLETE maga- 
zine. 



Stoekbridge Team 
To Face Six-Rivals 

The Stoekbridge School of Agri- 
culture, with a schedule harder 
than their locomotive cheer, will 
open its six game season at Thay- 
er October 1. 

Coach Steve Kosakowski will 
again coach the Aggies, who have 
three games at home on their 
chunk of Alumni Field. The 
schedule: 

at Thayer Acad. Oct. 1 

at Vermont Acad, 15 

Monson Acad. 21 

New Hampton 29 

Nichols Jr. College Nov. 4 

at Mount Hermon 12 



The big "S'» boys, Clarence 
Simpson and Johnny Suleski have 
departed from the scene after 
spectacular careers. Simp led all 
New England scorers last season, 
and that offensive punch will be 
sorely missed. 

Niedziewicki Vital Figure 

Coach Briggs is counting on 
Allen and Abrahamson to couple 
with halfback Ted Lee for the 
veteran Redmen defense. The key 
figure here, however, is goalie 
Chuck Niedziewicki. This diminu- 
tive netminder has a half season 
of varsity experience under his 
belt and is looking forward to a 
full year as first string goaltender. 
He has a lot of desire, and with 
the veteran defense, should do all 
right in the nets. 

The forward lines will be head- 
ed by cool, steady Ken Crooks. A 
two-year letterman, Crooks has 
been the top passer and hustler 
during recent seasons. 

Forward Jobs Open 

A dozen partially experienced 
forwards will be vying for the 
other five jobs on the starting 
eleven. Among these, Dave Hintze 
and Bud Bauchiero have been test- 
ed the most under fire. 

Lee Sutcliffe, Bill McCarry, and 
Dick Liebman are other veterans 
returning, and Ed Smith, Jack 
Newall, and Mitch Finegold are 
also competing for berths. The oft- 
dunked Dick Pomeroy is back 
again to try for a forward post. 

Coach Briggs is high on sopho- 
more Dick Golas who he feels will 
develop into a top performer at a 
halfback post. Coach Briggs ran 
true to form and said in his pre- 
season statement, "I'm hoping for 
a .500 season."

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1955 



Johnson, McGowan to Lead UM 
Gridmen vs. AIC in Nine Days 



O'Rourke SeeksLine 
Strength for Opener 

The UMass football team, under 
the whip of Coach Charlie 
O'Rourke for the fourth season, 
has completed the first two weeks 
of pre-season drills without an in- 
jury, and are ready for their last 
ten days of serious practice ses- 
sions before the home opener with 
AIC Sept. 24. 

Co-captains Don "Red" Johnson 
and John McGowan will lead the 
1955 edition of the Redmen which 
faces an eight-game schedule over 
a period of eight weeks. The only 
schedule change this year finds 
Brandeis replacing traditional ri- 
val Tufts late in the campaign. 

Coach O'Rourke has ten letter 
winners in camp, including the co- 
captains. The UMass eleven will 
feature a strong running backfield, 
with six of the ten returnees aim- 
ing at the four available slots. 

Line A Headache 

The line is the university's num- 
ber one problem. "Where will wp 
get more tackles and guards?" is 
the most often asked breakfast 
tahlp question on campus And 
Coach O'Rourke has done quite a 
bit in the past two weeks to solve 
this problem. 

Two grade-A small college ends 
will probably open the season for 
the Redmen. Dave Ingram, a jun- 
ior, and Cappy Kidd, a senior, are 
rugged pass receivers w*»ll over 
six feet. Leading reserve ends are 
sophs Bob DeValle and Jobn 
O'Keefe, along with junior Buzz 
Aller. 

McGowan's Third Year 

Co-captain McGowan. in his 
third season as a varsity perform- 
er and starter, will probably be 
switched from center to tackle for 
his last year. Replacing him at 
center will be Ken MacRae, a jun- 
ior, who saw considerable action 
in the middle of the line last fall. 

The running mate for McGowan 
at tackle will come from one of 
four non-letter-winning candidates. 
Fran Spriggs, Joe Canltdlo, Ralph 
Parsons and newcomer Jack War- 
ren are staging a battle royal for 
the open position. Lack of experi- 
ence here could weaken the Red- 
men line. 

The starting guards are tested 
and proven performers. Jimmy 
Dolan and Ron Matheson could 
make most any small college elev- 
en, but depth lacks at this post. 
Sophs Lou Varriehione, Vin Mess- 
ina, and Ed Richardson may come 
through. Senior Buzz Johnson will 
probably be the top sub guard, 
however. 

The Reeb To Coach 

Under the guidance of new 
backfield coach Noel Reebenacker, 
the four horses of the Redmen 
may be a solid, unfumbling unit. 
Tom Whalen and Jack Noble, both 
insignia winners in '54, are back 
at the QB slot. 

Whalen, the sharp signal caller 
and good punter, is also a sharpie 
on defense. Noble is an expert at 
throwing or running with the pig- 
skin. It's always a tossup as to 
who will start at quarterback for 
UMass. Soph Ron Blume will get 
I shot at the berth, too. 

Dickie Wright, Hal Bowers, 
Roger Barous, and Red Johnson 



LEADING THE REDMEN FORTUNES ON THE GRIDIRON this 
fall will be co-captains Don Johnson and John McGowan, both 
seniors from Fitchburg. Johnson will start in the backfield against 
VK'. while .McGowan, a displaced center, will probably open at 
tackle against the Aces.

are the other backfield veterans. 
Bowers impressed with his hard 
running in a recent intrasquad 
scrimmage and may land the start- 
ing fullback job. 

The other three will fight for 
the two halfback posts, along with 
a few newcomers. Dicks Thompson 
and Berquist could make the grad«.- 
at either half or full. Returnees 
John Cieri, Bill Mahoney, and Doc 
Enos are three iittie guys who 
can scamper. Another sophomore, 
Biff McLean, could also move into 
contention for a post. 

Contact Work Ahead 

During the last week of prac- 
tice, the starters will be weeded 
out, and a lot of contact work will 
take place in preparation for the 
Saturday opener. 

The Redmen of '55 have a rough 
schedule with four games in the 
Yankee Conference — against other 
State Universities. The battle for 
the Bean Pot seems more even 
than ever in history, with UMass 
having a good chance to grab the 
championship. 

A pre-season prediction in a na- 
tional magazine said that UM 



Help Wanted 

Letters can be won and are 
being won each year by mana- 
gers. The fall sports program, 
comprised of three sports, 
needs managers from the 
freshman and sophomore 
classes. Here is a rare oppor- 
tunity for underclassmen to 
get closer to the varsity inter- 
collegiate athletic teams. 

During the first weeks of 
school, any interested candi- 
dates should report to the fol- 
lowing coaches for the follow- 
ing sports: 

Football Charlie O'Rourke or

would be 7-1 in 1955. It oould be

SPORTS FOCUS 

Memo to Freshmen- 
Know. Adopt Redmen; 
And a Happy New Year 




• • • 



by Jack Chevalier 



• • • 



There's a brand new provost around here, there is a newly-elected 
group of student leaders ready to guide a thousand new freshmen in 
their first week here, and there're two new buildings under construction 
right outside our favorite C-store window. But the athletic department 
and the football team are not rookies — they've been here since early 
September. And so have we. 

To make it formal, Sports Focus says "Hi!" to you Redmen of the 
class of '59. Welcome to the university as students, Redmen fans, and 
readers of these Collegian sports pages. To the upperclassmen, it's 
"Welcome back, it's nice to see you, and we hope you had a nice one." 

Hurrah for the Team etc. 

If there is one thing around this campus that is dumped into the 
freshman's lap as being "the most," touted by wise-sounding upper- 
classmen as being invincible, and referred to by nostalgic "memory- 
laners" as "last year's heroes" it's our football team. Within ten days, 
every starry-eyed coed from Arnold will be calling it "The Team" and 
not knowing anything about its coach, players, or maybe even the sport. 

Therefore, hereby, thus, and consequently we shall quickly intro- 
duce "The Team" to you frosh. And maybe dust off a few older mem- 
ories while we're at it. 

The Coach is Charlie O'Rourke. If you want to make intelligent 
conversation about him during a timeout, you must know that he was 
an AU-American quarterback at Boston College in 1940, when the 
Eagles won the Sugar Bowl champi onship. It will be a feather in your 
cap if you mention that he's the guy with no hut, with the wavy light 
hair, and his hands thrust in his trench coat as he paces in front of 
of the bench. Sometimes he yells at "The Team." 

The "Other Coaches" are Hank Woronicz, Chet Gladchuk, and 
NToel Reebenacker. It will be enough if you can pronounce their names, 
but even better if you note that Reebenacker is in his first year here 
as Kaekfield coach. Noel was an All-New England quarterback unde r 
O'Rourke here in 1952. Coaches Gladchuk and Woronicz played vith 
O'Rourke on that great BC eleven. 

Food for the Frosh Memory 

"The Team" beat Harvard last year. Never forget that. No true 
UMie of the past, present, or future will ever forget October 2, 1954, 
when UMass defeated Harvard at Harvard, 13-7. Keep this basic know- 
ledge for future reference at your class reunions, arguments with Ivy 
League students, etc. We beat Harvard last year. 

The rest of last year was mediocre, with the team having a final 
won-Iost record of 4-4. About half of the lettcrmen graduated, and "The 
Team" this year is expected to do a little better than last year's. But it 
could beat Harvard again. And it could win them all. 

K'.sewhere on these sports pages you'll read about Coach O'Rourke's 
lineup, and about the players you'll want to cheer for especially. We 
assure you they have worked long and hard for three weeks to prepare 
for their short, eight-week season which lies ahead. 

Football is the most exciting season of the year, and also the one 
that flees the quickest. Join in the coming rallies, watch that team 
practice, and root your head off for them at every game all year. Adopt 
the Redmen, and know the Redmen. They're your team, and they're 
good enough to surprise you, Harvard, or even Charlie O'Rourke on 
any given Saturday. 

For the second straight season, all the Redmen football players 
are Massachusetts residents .... It is believed that UMass is the only 

school to boast of such a record Homecoming game this year will 

be October 15 when Rhode Island comes to town .... The Redmen will 
beout to beat the Rams who derailed them last year, 52-6, after UM 
had won its first three .... The A.I.C. campus, alive with spirit over 
their promising grid combine, will pour en masse to Amherst for next 
Saturday's opener They're out to get us, too.

University Honors List 



45 Make Top List 
For Spring Honors 

Over 520 students made last 
spring's University Honors List, 
with a total of 45 pulling averages 
of over 3.8. 

The total compares to an esti- 
mated 900 for the same list in 
1954. This year's smaller number 
is due to the more stringent re- 
quirements inherent in the newly 
adopted quality point system.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



SPECIAL FRESHMAN SECTION 



Pres. Mather Says: 



'Good Luck and Ask Questions' 



We are happy that you are now 
in Amherst. We want you to feel 
at home and we want you to make 
the best possible place in your 
educational endeavor in the years 
ahead. Please do not let the 
strangeness of your surrounding 
either frighten you of us or hinder 
you in your serious effort. 

We are all freshmen about 
something nearly every day. You 
have lots of company, then, all 
over the campus. Do your best and 
we will do our best for you. You 
are now more "on your own" than 
you probably ever have been. 

Your accomplishment will be the 
real measure of your understand- 
ing of the opportunity you have 
and your responsibility to that op- 



portunity. Remember that for each 
one of you who has been admitted 
this fall there are at least eight 
others who would like to have 
come to the university but could 
not be admitted. 

Please start asking questions 
now and continue to ask them 
throughout your college career 
even when you get obviously 
wrong answers. 

I hope to meet a greater number 
of this class on the graduation 
platform in 1959 than those of any 
previous entering class who have 
so succeeded. More power to you 
as you establish such a record. 

J. Paul Mather 
President 



Complete Program Schedule 
Set For Freshman Orientation 



Provost McCune Says: 



WeFroshMustMakeFriends ' 



As a fellow freshman I want to 
give to the class of 1959 a special 
word of greeting. This is an inter- 
esting, alive place, — this world of 
Massachusetts — where we newly 
find ourselves. I am sure that we 
will in the coming years learn to 
know much more of this campus, 
its faculty and staff, and the many 
activities — research, teaching, and 
extension work — which take place 
on it. 

With this knowledge will comt a 
deep appreciation of the values pf 
this place of learning, this "assori- 
ation of scholars". 

It is a world with many attrib- 
utes and I am going to discuss 
some of them as they impress 
me as a freshman in my talk at 
the convocation on Thursday, Sep- 
tember 22nd. 



We freshmen are entering at a 
time when there are some import- 
ant changes taking place — and at 
a very rapid speed — at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts. How- 
ever, we need to remember that 
there are many aspects which are 
not changing and should not 
change — a love of learning in a 
free atmosphere is one of the most 
important of these lasting aspects. 
When you see me on the cam- 
pus I hope you will introduce your- 
self an that we can get personally 
acquainted for this is a student- 
centered campus and, as the Pro- 
vost, I'd like to get to know you. 
Besides, as a freshman, T'm find- 
ing it fun — as are you — to make 
lew friends. 

Shannon McCune 

Provost 



Editor Lambert Says: 



'Your Best Years Lie Ahead' 



On behalf of the Collegian, may 
I welcome the class of '59 and 
extend best wishes for a most en- 
joyable and profitable experience 
while at UM. 

You are about to journey 
through the best years of your 
lives; plunge your whole selves 
into your scholastic endeavors and 
extra-curricular activities, and you 
will amass many adventures and 
intimacies to relive in the future. 

The Collegian knows you will 



treasure the precious heritage and 
traditions entrusted to you. But we 
also have faith that you will build 
upon and excell the commendable 
performance of your predecessors. 
It is with mixed pride and nos- 
talgic envy (don't permit the haz- 
ing you receive to mislead you) 
that we embrace the latest addi- 
tion to Mettawampee's family. 

John P. Lambert 
Executive Editor 



Student Gov't Prexy Cole Says: 



' We Expect '59 To Be Active ' 



On behalf of the student gov- 
erment it is my pleasure to wel- 
come you, the class of 1959, to 
the University of Massachusetts. 

The Student Government is our 
government- Its purpose is to pro- 
mote the welfare of the student 
body and the university. By .active 
participation-either in an elected 
office, or by merely casting your 
vote in an election you help to 
strengthen our Student Govern- 
ment. 

Some years the student govern- 
ment has been accused of being a 
"do nothing". This has been true 



L's All Yours 

This special issue, designed 
to help the freshman class get 
acquainted with the forces and 
faces that make UM run, is 
presented as a public service 
to the newest university class. 

And as this has been our 
contribution to the opening of 
the portals to an unknown 
world, we hope that from now 
until June we may report and 
editorialize upon your comings 
and goings with the same 
wonder arid honesty which you 
now bring to this school. 



Co-Ree Sports Day Tours, Tests on Tap 



Freshman orientation week with 
its tours, tests, and entertainment, 
begins today with the arrival of 
the frosh, and continues until Reg- 
istration Dance, Tuesday night. 

During this period, the members 
of the university's newest class will 
get a brief and hurried view of 
campus activity. 

The Maroon Key, Scrolls, and 
Revelers — the three honor societies 
which are in charge of orientation 
week — have a large schedule of 




(o-Rec Sports Day — Freshman Week Highlight 



events planned for the welcome 
frosh. That schedule is printed in 
its entirety below. 

Ball Starts Rolling Now 

Activities begin tonight with 
dorm meetings and continue to- 
morrow and Saturday when I.Q. 
tests will be administered. 

Saturday afternoon and evening, 
the freshman's only chance for 
coed-recreation will be offered. Co- 
Rec sports day, with football, soft- 
ball, tennis, soccer, volleyball, etc 
on tap for boys and girls lasts th» 
whole afternoon. 

After the annual supper oj 
Alumni Field, the popular Co-Rec 
square dance will be held on the 
Freshman Football field. 

Tours Slated Sunday 

Sunday tours of the campus are 
scheduled, and Monday the Fresh- 
man class meeting is on tap. This 
meeting is compulsory as the rules 
for regiisti'ttuuii are outlined. 

Registration, that twice-a-year 
headache, is Tuesday's all-day pro- 
gram. It is complicated, and takes 
place in the Cage. 

Tuesday night the Registration 
dance is held with the best in mu- 
sic and refreshments. It is not 
complicated and takes place in the 
Cage. It is the ONLY event of 
the weekend to which freshmen 
are advised to come without their 
Handbook. 



at times, but it usually goes back 
to a disinterested student body. 

Although you aren't the largest 
class to enter the university, we 
are all looking for you to be one 
of the most active. By participa- 
tion in the activities of the student 
body you not only strengthen the 
university, but also help the devel- 
opment of your own personality. 

May I once again say welcome, 
and best of luck in the greatest 
four years of your life. 

George F. Cole, Pres. 
Student Government

This guide to the map of the 
UM campus (above) is in two divi- 
sions. The first major segment is 
divided into four groups of bind- 
ings. 

Unit one runs from buildings 
numbered 1 through 22, and in- 
cludes all major structures at: the 
west edge of campus, mostly to 
the west (left) of the Potd. Num- 
bering in this group, as in all 
others, goes from north to south. 
If buildings are side by side the 
one to the west (left) has the low- 
er number. 

Berkshire, Hampshire, Middle- 
sex, Plymouth, and Suffolk dorms 
— the County Circle houses — are 
located just west and south of 
Munson Hall, number 22 on the 
map. "^ 

ttuiidiugs 23 through 40 dot both 
sides of Route 116 which splits 
the university into East and West 
Campi. 

Group three, including numbers 
<1 to 47, covers the structures at 

he east (right) of Stockbridge 

toad, which runs parallel to Route 

16. Thatcher and Lewis dorms 
are also part of this group. 

The fourth map unit contains 
the buildings on Snob Hill, plus 
Mills and Brooks houses. Snob Hill 
buildings are numbered from 48 
through 56. 



After the numbered index fol- 
lows an alphabetical listing of 
a building the list is cross-refer- 
most mnipus structures. Where 
some doubt may exist as to the 
name of a building l he list is cross- 
referenced. For instance, Stock- 
bridge Hall, which houses Bowker 
Auditorium is filed under both 
Stockbridge Hall and Bowker. Sim- 
ilarly, the numbered list combines 
both names under one unit: Stock- 
bridge Hall (Bowker Aud.)

DEARIE. DO YOU REMEMBER... 

by M rtha Lipchitz 

Time was when the Massachusetts Collegian printed the names 
of all incoming freshmen, in the first issue of the paper. That was 
thirty years ago, and the 181 names took up one column. 

But more than 950 freshmen this year are entering into a com- 
)letoly different atmosphere. For instance, while lunching in the St. 
Regis Diner the other day, we tuned in to a former Amherst resident 
H'ho has returned after twenty-nine years. We learned that Amherst 

was a fairly lively place then, also, 
although we cant quite see how 
they existed without us. 

It scorns ihat there used to be a 
thick hedge along the walk in front 
of St. Brigid's Church in the center 
of town. Amherst College gentle- 
men often hid behind this growth 
and would let out with barn 
y..rd pomdl as the Mass. Aggies 
v are returning from a late movie 
at ♦.he Town Hall. This often led to 
scuffles and minor injuries. 

Hut now, the hedge is gone. Un- 
fortunately, the name Mass. Aggie 
■■: been forgotten, and it is 
WIN tot every freshman to learn 
right this moment, that the phrase 
"Oh, yes, you go to MASS \GGIE" 
is to be greeted with a correction, 
and possibly a scuff ie if nt-ressary- 
You might point out to the mis- 
taken pt noil that he must be pret- 



ty old if he remembers. The name 
was changed back in the thirties. 
Don't Mention This 

You needn't mention that the 
grassy area around the College 
Pond was a cornfield until 1947. 
This will only serve to weaken the 
argument. 

Sophomores and Freshmen of 
Stockbridge had a few "Nightshirt 
Parades" to boast of. Frosh on 
Baker Hill would charge in the 
dark across campus (there was not 
Uracil in the way then) to the cow 
barns, where the Sophomores con- 
gregated. D.-n't know what, they 
wen- after; hut then again, they 
probably didn't either. 

Many of the hi> ldings hero to- 
day weren't even dreams then. 
Others, which were the pride of 
the campus are gone — or to be 



razed soon. Durfee Range went out 
only last year, replaced by the new 
greenhouses to be seen on Presi- 
dent's Drive. They k-^ep these 
locked on cold nights, iiow, but 
we remember when . . . 

Can't Beat Around Bushes 
The big change in the Abbey 
came only in the past summer. 
The hedges which hid it from view 
were dug out. You wouldn't be- 
lieve this, but we have heard of 
people who did not know until they 
became upperclassmen, that there 
was something behind the mass of 
shrubs. The outdoor, wooden fire 
escapes, which added to the atmos- 
phere of the place, have also been 
removed. 

North College will be eliminated 
soon; we hope the LA building will 
follow. Also the Math building, 
thank you. But \o matter what 
buildings come and go, it seems 
they had the same ideas then, as 
now. 

"Why not," the Cnlh-ginn asked 
in 1924, concerning the rope pulls, 
"call (them) algae parties, or en- 
tomological expeditions . . .? A 
fn-shman splashing into the pond 
gets equal amounts of discipline 
and n'irn slime " 

So there vou are. 



Advice to... 

by Cynthia Lonstein 

The first impression of this 
campus is surprise — the enormity 
of it all. Enthusiastically the 
freshman greets the beautiful cam- 
pus and the rolling grass-covered 
hills. 

One week on campus ends this. 
Disillusionment sets in. The second 
week is spent limping around with 
the air filled with the plaint of 
"Oh, how my feet ache." One be- 
comes used to it. Therefore my 
first suggestion to poor lost souls 
is to lay in a large supply of 
Grandma's Liniment for Aching 
Feet. 

As little Emily begins dragging 
the first of her five small trunks 
into the dorm, a masculine voice 
oilers t<> help her. Demurely vhr 
assents, whereupon she sees her 
trunk sitting nn a pair of mam- 
moth male shoulders. Now Emily. 
you should be warned. This can be 
your first mistake — don't lot this 
man got away from you. He Is a

once a year for this annual chore. 
This is all the warning that should 
be necessary. 

After greeting her housemother, 
little Emily is completely surprised 
by the charm of this sophisticated 
woman. This means that she gives 
no heed to the p<re-old stories of 
wardens. Maybe she should. 

Immediately little Emily is met 
with a battery of demands: make 
a hat, make a sign, put your name 
on the sign. So many that she feels 
her head will split. It will. This 
gives rise to my suggestion. Bring 
along a large supply of Johnson's 
Gauze and Adhesive Tape. It will 
be needed to put little Emily back 
together 

These talks done, all the little 
Kmilies are herded into groups by 
a trainer in a maroon and white 
hat. Those characters who look like 
parading Sir Gladrocks are called, 
in our world, Maroon Keys, and 
they turn the freshman orientation 
period Into a standardized opera- 
tion rather than letting it degen- 
erate into utter chaos. Little frosh, 
he grateful unto your superiors. 
As T belong to that sterling race 
known as upperclassmen, I expect 
only life long gratitude for my 
helpful suggestions.

Frosh Sports Program Vital 
Part of UMass Athletic Show 



The near future will bring try- i learn their stuff from "Mister Soc-

man athletic teams, as the univer- ity coach at UM for 23 seasons, 
sity sports program prepares for win h an dl e the freshmen during 
another big season of freshman in- 



Intramurals Provide Frosh 
With Healthful Activity 



Intramurals are a basic part of 
college life and a growing section 
of the UMass athletic program — 
therefore all male freshmen are 
encouraged to join their big broth- 
ers in making the 1955-56 'mural 
season the biggest and smoothest 
ever. 

Henry Woronicz, freshman foot- 
ball coach, will once again act as 
Intramural Director. Last year he 
performed the problem-filled tasks 
of schedules, forfeits, rainouts, 
and playoffs with the highest de- 
gree of efficiency. It is expected 
that this season a record number 
of teams will be entered in the 
five-sport program. 

Football Only Fall Sport 
Football is the only fall sport 
played in Intramurals. All game? 
are played at night, under the 
lights on the frosh gridiron. The 
three freshman dorms usually 
form a total of seven teams to 
compete in the non-fraternity divi- 
sion. The fraternities have the/ir 
own circuit. 

The rules for 'mural football are 
simple. It's six-man football, and 
one-hand touch. No equipment 
heavier than a football shirt is 
allowed. 

The field is cut in half, so the 
measurements are 50 yards long 
by 60 yards wide. Scoring, natur- 
ally, is the same, except that there 
are no field goals. 

The rules of play call for only 
two major changes from regular 
college ball. The defensive line 
must hf five yards behind the ball 
in order to give the offense a 
chance to start the play. This is 
always in force unless the offense 
is within ten yards of a TD. 
Ball on Ground is Dead 
The other rule states that any 
fumble, or bad center pass is dead 
ns soon as it hits the ground. Stu- 
dent referees from the Phys Ed 
department act as 'mural officials. 
The four other sports in the In- 
tramural program are basketball, 
the biggest, plus bowling, volley- 
ball, and softball in season. 

All freshman men are urged to 
join this advantageous and enjoy- 
able program. The dorm athletic 
managers will receive notices from 
Mr. Woronicz about the formation 
of teams. 

Two final notes: All men on var- 
sity or freshman teams are not 
allowed to play. Also, freshman 
girls cannot get late permissions 
to act as cheerleaders. 



tercollegiate activity. 

Calls for candidates in football, 
soccer, and cross country among 
the frosh will be issued soon after 
the start of classes by the respec- 
tive coaches. The first taste of 
competition for the frosh comes 
Sept. 30 when the yearling croM 
country team facca Harvard.

The same story holds true in 
cross country. Bill Footrick, in his 
sophomore year of coaching here, 
will tutor the UMass frosh in an 
attempt to build a big winning 
team in the future. UM is a 
strong cross country school, and a 
good freshman class will mean a 
solid future for Coach Footrick.

"Frosh" McCune Outlines 
World of Mass. For Convo 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1955 



The campus received its first in- 
troduction to UM's new provost, 
Shannon McCune, at the annual 
All-University Convocation held 
Thursday in the Cage. 

McCune, addressing himself 
chiefly to his "fellow freshmen," 
pointed out five principal ingred- 
ients that make up the new "World 
of Massachusetts" in which the in- 
coming class finds itself. 

Among the intangible compon- 
ents he listed are the proud past 
and vigorous ambition of the uni- 
versity, and its dynamic, forward- 
looking nature. He called UMass 
a place to "dream big dreams." 

The new provost also spoke of 
the freedom with responsibility 
that students enjoy as an import- 
ant aspect of the university, and 
called for a strongly-supported 
Student Senate and a responsible 
press and radio. 

President J. Paul Mather opened

High-Schoolers 
To Visit Tomorrow 

Several hundred secondary 
school pupils from all sections of 
the state are expected to be on 
campus tomorrow for the annual 
High School Day at the university. 

The program will include a 
tour of the campus, demonstra- 
tions and exhibits by the various 
departments, and a display of 
Armor and Air Force equipment. 

In the afternoon the visiting 
students will attend the football 
game between the Redmen and 
AIC. 

The offices of 0*9 Registrar will 
be open from 3:30 a.m. until 3:30 

p.m. for personal interviews re 
garding admission. 

Interviews for admission to 
Stockbridge will be in the office 
of Fred Jeffrey, Director of Short 
Courses, in his South College of- 
fice. 



the convo with a welcome that 
spoke of UM's expanded building 
program and his coming fight for 
freedom from the Personnel Com- 
mittee in Boston. 

He evoked cheers when he stated 
that Oct. 1 classes will be cancelled 
because of the Harvard game, up- 
on recommendation from the Stu- 
dent Senate. The Senate will or- 
ganize a motorcade from Amherst 
to Boston for the occasion. 
Oct. 1 Classes to be Held Jan. 20 

The only comment Provost Mc- 
Cune would make on the game was 
a Tom Lehrer quote that Harvard 
would "fight fiercely" as usual. 

Father David J. Power gave the 
invocation and benediction at the 
convo, which began with the fac- 
ulty processional and closed with 
the faculty recessional. 

Collegian Errs 

In the right lead story of 
the first edition of the Colic- 
yian, dated Sept. 15, 1955, this 
newspaper erroneously reported 
that J. Paul Mather's Freedom 
Crusade would be waged 
"against" the legislature. 

This is incorrect. Mather 
has no intentions of fighting 
the General Court. His hope is 
to bring the problems before 
the legislature and work with 
it more closely. 

His aim is to make the uni- 
versity responsible to the law- 
makers and not to the state 
Personnel Commission.

to help promote the spirit of the 
crowd at sports events.

Campus Will Dance And Cheer 
"Trump The Aces" At Rally Tonight 



Harvard Holiday Insures Big 
U M Turnout at Stadium Oct.l 



UM enjoys a holiday next Sat- 
urday, Oct. 1, as all classes sched- 
uled for that day have been post- 
poned until the end of the semester 
to allow a maximum cheering sec- 
tion at the Harvard game in Bos- 
ton. 

The Senate, at an emergency 
meeting called Sept. 17 by presi- 
dent George Cole, formulated a 
request to the administration for 
the schedule switch. 

Motorcade Planned Again 

A motorcade, similar to last 
year's cheering stream from Am- 
herst to Boston, will open a day- 
long program for Boston-bound 
football fans. 

An informal dance at the Crys- 
tal Ballroom of the Hotel Kenmore 
is being sponsored by the UM 
Alumni Club of Greater- Boston 
Saturday night at 8 p.m. 
Dance Proceeds for Scholarship 

Dance proceeds will go towards 



a scholarship for a greater- Boston 
resident returning to the univer- 
sity next year. Tickets for the 
dance are on sale at reduced rates 
in the alumni office at Mem Hall. 

Either President Mather or Pro- 
vost McCune will lead the motor- 
cade along routes 202 and 2. It 
will start at 9 a.m., lining up in 
front of QTV. Buses will be pro- 
vided if at least 41 people sign 
up for them on lists posted in the 
dorms. 

Registration Delayed 

State police have been contacted 
to escort the motorcade and town 
police have been notified of its ap- 
proximate arrival to facilitate 
traffic conditions. 

Classes missed Oct. 1 will be 
made up on Fri., Jan. 20. Registra- 
ion, now scheduled all day Jan. 
20, will probably be in the after- 
noon of that day and carried over 
to Jan. 21 and 23. 



Join The Team 

What team? 

Wo're not really the twenty- 
mule team which Ya-Hoo pictured 
us as last year. Besides, even 
should we desire to recruit, into 
our service — jack-asses, we would 
not be able to do so on this cam- 
pus; Ya-Hoo has already snapped 
them up. 

But why should you join the 
Collegian team? What's in it for 
you? First you paid $2.75 for the 
prerogative to partake of its of- 
ferings. You might as well get 
your money's worth. Secondly, 
working on the college paper wid- 
ens your circle of acquaintances 
and contacts. Thirdly, here is a 
great opportunity to actively fur- 
ther those improvements, activi- 
ties and causes you have so long 
wished to inflict upon this cam- 
pus. You owe it to yourself and 
the campus at large to express 
yourself, to insure capable and 
efficient fulfillment of the stu- 
dents' (not partisan) interests and 
welfare, to enjoy an active part 
in the students' organizations and 
activities- Fourthly, training and 
experience on the college paper 
aids you in reading and evalua- 
ting the day's events. Being able

Efc-Prexy Praises 
Mather's Campaign 

Dr. Grover C. Bowman, former 
president of North Adams State 
Teachers college, has expressed his 
agreement with President Mather 
on the latter's recent speech aimed 
at the state legislature. 

"I concur whole-heartedly with 
everything that President Mather 
said. And everything he said about 
the state's operation of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts could 
have been said about our State 
Teachers college here." said Dr. 
Bowman who. prior to his retire- 
ment last December, headed the 
North Adams institution for seven 
teen years. 

Dr. Bowman said that all issues 
should be in the hands of a l>oard 
of trustees which would eliminate 
the delay caused by submitting the 
problems to the jurisdiction of 
appointees in Boston. During 
his years at the State Teachers 
college, he said, a mass of govern 
mental red 1:ipe had to l>e gone 
through before e\er. tin im|>lest 

administrative need could lie filled 
and man\ worthwhile proposals 
died in the legislature 

He believed that President 
Mather's vow bo take personnel 
problems out of the control of 
Civil Service Clerks "who hav< n<>

praiseworthy and b lected

Parade Will Launch 
Fall Sports Season 

The first football rally of the 
year will be staged tonight on 
the pond side of Mem Hall and 
will be followed by a dance in the 
Cage. 

"Trump the Aces" will be the 
rally cry in reference to the game 
with AIC tomorrow afternoon. 

The rally parade, in which the 
cheerleaders, Precisionettes, the 
Marching Band, Scrolls, Maroon 
Key, and beamed and bibbed fresh- 
men will march, will begin at 
Butterfield. It will proceed down 
President's Hill, turn right at the 
bottom of the hill, cross North 
Pleasant Street at the traffiic 
lights, and then go to Mem Hall. 

Mathew Sgan of Adelphia, as- 
sisted by Gerald Portnoy, will be 
master of ceremonies for the rally 
show. The cheerleaders will be on 
the stand and music will be pro- 
vided by a Red Cooper-Dick Par- 
ent combo. 

Featured at the rally will be the 
five Miss Football candidates, Bar- 
bara Axt, Fay Hannibal, Elaine 
Munroe, Marilyn Votano, and Carol 
Bruinsma, who will begin their 
reign over the entire fall sports 
program. The winner of the con- 
test will be announced Homecom- 
ing Weekend. 

Both the rally and dance are 
monsored by Adelphia and Mortar 
Board and proceeds from the dance 
will benefit the Adelphia-Mortar 
Board Scholarship. Tickets are 
$.30. Music will be provided by 
Dick Parent and his "Playboys".

Athletic Hero Talks 
To Newman Frosh 

George Burke, popular UMass 
sjx>rts stPr, was the ntein speaker 
at the Newman Club's open meet- 
ing for freshmen, following the 
Religious Convocation last Mon- 
day. 

S|H>aking to a crowd that over- 
flowed room 1 of the Dining Com- 
mons, Burke captured the hushed 
attention of his audience by read- 
ing a letter written by a fresh- 
man on another campus troubled 
by the essentially faithless atmos- 
phere of campus life. 

The versatile campus leader and 
basketball ace went on to explain 
that the purpose of education is 
"to establish contact with the to- 
tality of our environment with a 
view to understanding the full 
m* aning and puipo«» of life." 
This aim, he said, cannot be ac- 
complished unless one first enters 
Into a relationship of understand 
ing with God. 

Faith, he asserted is the essen- 
tial ingredient for giving form 
and purpose to higher education, 
as to ull aspects of life.

THEY JUST FADE 

The most glaring example of student 
apathy was pointed out yesterday at the 
University Convocation. Out of over 4,000 
students on this campus, only approximately 
500 were present in the Cage at 11 a.m. 

It seems to us that when an event is con- 
sidered important enough so that classes are 
dismissed early there should be better 
representation. Not only was the attendance 
poor but the general attitude of the few stu- 
dents present was very poor. It is consid- 
ered not only improper but in extremely 
bad taste to leave until the academic proces- 
sion has completely left the building. Thurs- 
day morning there was a stampede of stu- 
dents, especially those in the balcony who 
apparently thought they were not in the 
Cage and therefore had no reason to show 
consideration and respect for their elders, 
not only in years but also in learning and 
education. 

As for the attendance — this was a af- 
front to the dignity of the administration 
and the faculty. The University Convoca- 
tion is supposed to be the first big event of 
this university's calendar year. Yet many 
of us thought it was not important. 

It this convocation had come later in the 
school year when people would have been 
studying for hour exams and writing papers, 
a few less than the entire student body 
would have been permissible. 

However, Thursday was the second day 
of classes. All of us had been on campus 
since Monday, at least, so we were moved 
into our rooms. The introductory assign- 
ments are not too long for the most part and 
there are no papers required normally this 
early in the year. The testing program and 
the other freshman activities have long been 
finished. The snack bar and the C-Store were 
closed, the dining halls were closed, the li- 
brary was closed, — where was everyone at 
11 yesterday? Yet, immediately after convo 
hour there was a long line at the dining halls 
—1200 people standing in line, according to 
estimate. Where did all of you come from? 
And what was your reason for not attending 
University Convo? A.D.S 



BE PREPARED 

Elections for Student Senate will soon be 
here. Now is the time to begin thinking 
about the candidates we want to nominate 
and elect. 

We should keep in mind that these people 
will have an active part in many of the rules 
and regulations that affect us, particularly 
through the committees on women's affairs, 
men's affairs, buildings and grounds, and 
boarding halls, as wpU as the finance com- 
mittee. 

Desirable characteristics in a student sen- 
ator are responsibility, a sense of right and 
wrong and the ability to do the former more 
often than the latter, a willingness to air 
the complaints and plaudits of his constitu- 
ents and a sense of values, not only moral, 
but also of the relative values of situations. 

We do not want senators who have only 
personal gripes to air in senate meetings, 
nor someone who is not sufficiently interested 
in the job which the dorm or other group 
has given him by electing him to attend and 
take part in the regular and special meetingl 
of the senate. 

Above all, we should be interested in our 

Vote! A.D.S. 



C & S Inquire: 

Will Four Males Please, 
With Skirts In Breeze 
While Knees Freeze 

Move over sex, here comes muscle. 

It won't be Amazon Joe Cardello, but 
four lesser muscles-men who'll be bumping 
and grinding with Sherry Richards and her 
crew at Alumni Field Saturday. 

For the first time since the '52 football 
season, men cheerleaders will join the nine 
nifties in leading UM students support from 
the sidelines at all pigskin battles. 

With the four newest lovelies added to 
the squad — Bobby Brown, Norman Dinner- 
stein, Jerry Portnoy, and Don Rizzo — the 
cheerleaders are now thirteen, enough to 
spell out M-A-S-S-A-C-H-U-S-E-T-T-S. 

At first we thought that was why the 
quartet was added ,but, says Sherry Rich- 
ards, captain of the cheerleaders, it's the 
noise that's needed. 

Besides, the boys are acrobats. It's a 
well-known fact that Harvard can't play 
football, and now we can rival them even on 
the sidelines with our contortionists. 

Last winter we snowed sweet Sherry with 
orchids for getting her chorus line out to 
the basketball games. Now it's boutonnieres 
to Bobby Brown and bunch for risking 
health and reputation. 

So, from Kappa Alpha Theta to QTV, 
from Sigma Phi Epsilon to Phi Mu Delta, 
they're the biggest noise on campus.

Tramp, Tramp, Tramp 

by John Rosenburg 

Hats off— to the Bay State Rifles. This fall 
marks the third anniversary of the organization of 
the Armor ROTC Drill team. 

The Bay State Rifles, under the guidance of 
Major Kenneth Peters, became an active campus 
organization back in the fall of 1952, and has been 
performing to the thrill of spectators on campus 
and throughout the state ever since. 

Although Major Peters left last summer for 
duty in Korea, his position as coach of the drill 
team will be filled by Lt. Col. Donald Eastlake, with 
the assistance of M/Sgt. Barringer. 

The chief purpose of the Armor drill team, the 
Bay State Rifles, is to provide an opportunity for 
freshmen and sohomore Armor ROTC cadets to 
gain increased military proficiency while having an 
interesting and enjoyable experience at the same 
time. 

During the last three years the Rifles have 
marched in parades at Springfield, Concord, Am- 
herst, Pittsfield, and in the annual St. Patrick's 
Day Parade in Holyoke. Their schedule also includes 
home and away football games where they have 
made an excellent showing of their skill in march- 
ing and drilling. Further plans to enter in compe- 
tition with other college army ROTC drill teams 
are now being formulated. 

This organization also has many social func- 
tions such as dances, parties, and other informal 
get-togethers. 

This year the commander of the Armor ROTC 
(Mil team will be Cadet Lt. Colonel John Mason, a 
senior holding a DMS (Ditsinguished Military Stu- 
dent) rating and three University awards for mili- 
tary proficiency. Cadet Lt. Colonel Mason will be 
assiated as commander by Cadet M/Sgt. Richard 
Boyle and Cadet M/Sgt. Richard B. Baldwin. 

The 36 selected cadets who comprise the Bay 
State Rifles wear special yellow accessories with 
their uniform, (scarf, leggings, helmet liners, and 
gloves) and drill apart from the rest <»f the armor 
ead*t regimi-nt. Practice drills are held each Tues- 
day and Thursday at 11 o'clock, plus special drill 
sessions before performances. 

Next Tuesday at 11 o'clock all freshmen and 
sophomore armor ROTC cadets interested in joining 
tin' Bay State Rifles should report to the training 
aids room in drill hall. If you are interested in ad- 
vancing your military knowledge and experien<< , 
this will be a wonderful opportunity for you. 



—NOTICE— 

The first meeting <>f the Student Senate will he 
held Tuesday. Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. in Skinner Hall. 
All senators should attend this orientation meeting. 



CAMPI HEARD 
CAMPI SCENE, 

Touched Best With Desire 

He is a short man. The papers 
sometimes say he is wiry. His 
voice is very quiet. 

He walks across campus in brisk 
short strides, his head bent for- 
ward from his neck, his jaw al- 
most jutting ahead like the prow 
of a destroyer. 

Almost no one seems to see him 
on campus, and even fewer say 
hello to him; and he has said that 
it makes him feel very lonely. 
A Lonely Sag . . . 
His conservative suits do not set 
him off. But the brave half-cocky 
stride is a trademark of sorts. He 
walks a good deal, sometimes from 
his house to his office and back 
again at noon, and if you should 
follow him across the path which 
splits the pond and the brook you 
will perhaps see a sag in his 
shoulders, for he is a tired man 
too. 

But the slump is not only from 
weariness. It comes from his lone- 
liness too. He is alone partially 
from desire, and partially from 
the nature of his work. He likes 
his work, even if it means constant 
haggling with everyone from state 
legislators to student reporters. 

His students do not know him 
very well, and that hurts him. His 
invitation to the Student Senate 
to come up to his house on the hill 
anytime (except Sunday morn- 
ings) has never been accepted. He 
was something of an unhappy fig- 
ure a year ago when he spoke of 
the way he is ignored on campus. 
... A Brilliant Staff . . . 
For two years he held two dif- 
ficult jobs at once. First he was 
Provost and Acting President. 
Then he was President and Acting 
Provost. But now, as he gathers a 
staff of brilliant young men 
around him, the pressures of his 
job might diminish. 

But now he is engaged in what 
he has called the biggest batt'.e of 
his life. He wants to restore to the 
school hiring freedom so that he 
can build a great university. 

He is an ambitious man working 
to create a world he will enjoy and 
admire. He is touched best with 
desire. 

All the work has made him a 
little belligerent, a little brusque 
with the people on his staff at 
South College, and he is no longer 
the hero that he once was. 

... A New Respect . . . 
But with the lessening popular- 
ity has come a slowly increasing 
respect. His abilities as a public 
speaker have improved, and he can 
talk well and briefly, though he 
still seems nervous when he is 
talking to people. 

His overworked jokes of last 
year — the unending succession of 
references to "Haavaad" and its 
trimmed crewcuts l>eing only an 
example — have not been much in 
evidence so far. 

His name, of courso, is Jean 
Paul Mather. He goes by "Jean" 
but signs his letters "J. Paul" so 
no one will think he's a girl. 

He goes to work on the second 
floor of South College on week- 
ends sometimes, because he spends 
so much of his workday talking to 
the thousands of taxpayers who 
belong to Rotary Clubs and Grang- 
es in the state. Now he must con- 
vince the people of the state, and 
their elected representatives, that 
the university must heconie re- 
sponsible to the legislature instead 
of the "little men" on commis- 
sions. 

It will he a difficult and perhaps 
heart breaking task. We wish him 

luck. Pandora

Redmen Rule Slight Favorites I BOOTERS OPPOSE 



To Trump Aces Tomorrow 

Line Biggest Worry _^ — — 

With Mathi son Hurt 



Welhvorth Award Presented 



by Jack Chevalier 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke will be 
the dealer and quarterback Tommy 
Whalen will hold all the cards in 
the deck Saturday at Alumni Field 
where the Redmen will attempt to 
trump the Aces of AIC before an 
expected crowd of 7500 at the 
season's opener. 

The 1955 Redmen, who have 
practiced four weeks for their 2 
o'clock unveiling Saturday, boast 
a solid backfield combination and 
a strong starting line. The team 
has survived the rugged weeks of 
drills and scrimmages with only 
one major injury — to Ron Mathe- 
son's back. 

Matheson sprained a back 
muscle, and may see only limited 
service against AIC. 

Varrichione May Start 
His starting position at guard 
may be filled by sophomore Lou 
Varrichione, who would team with 
Jim Dolan in the pulling out spots 
in the line. Further injuries to 
the team's few veteran linemen 
could result in disaster. 

Ken MacRae, a boy who played 
a lot of center last season for the 
Redmen, will be back at his fav- 
orite slot in '55. The tackles will 
be co-captain John McGowan and 
Ralph Parsons. Parsons, a senior, 
played in only two games last 
fall, but has improved enough to 
earn a starting berth this year. 
UM Flankers Strong 
The ends are strong. Capable 
veterans Cappy Kidd and Dave In- 
gram will be backed up this year 
Dy sopns d<ju -L/c v aiic onu «-/.--.-,- 
O'Keefe. All four are equally pro- 
ficient on defense as well as of- 
fense. 

(Continued on page h) 



It is the privilege of the Col- 
li j inn sports pa get to announce 
another first for 1955-56. 

This year, for the lirst time, an 
award will be made each week to 
an university athlete .or the out- 
standing individual sports perform- 
ance of the week in an intercol- 
legiate varsity contest. 

This award, to be known as the 
Wellworth Award, is sponsored by 
the Wellworth Pharmacy in town, 
and will appear each Friday on 
these Collegian sports pages. 

Beginning next Friday, Septem- 
ber 30, and continuing until June, 
the week's best athletic perform- 
ance will be rewarded by a useful 
gift bag of merchandise from the 
Wellworth Pharmacy. The varsity 
athlete winning the prize will also 



be presented an attractive certifi- 
cate as a permanent reminder of 
the honor. 

The judges of the contest will 
come from the staff of the Pharm- 
acy and the Collegian sports staff. 

Since the three varsity teams 
are in action this weekend, all 
team members will be eligible for 
the first award. Such feats as 
three goals in soccer, exceptional 
times in cross country meets, and 
long runs or passes in football 
will be rewarded. Of course, de- 
fensive work in soccer and foot- 
ball will not be overlooked. 

It is hoped that interest in the 
new Wellworth Award grows 
quickly among students and ath- 
letes, so the Wellworth Award will 
become well worth winning. 



DARTMOUTH TODAY 



Squeaky & Co. Open Season 
Against Dartmouth Today 



The lid gets pried off of another 
intercollegiate athletic season this 
afternoon at Alumni Field where 
Coach Larry Briggs' soccer team 
will take on powerful Dartmouth 
at 2 p.m. 

Co-captained by veteran full- 
backs Mel Allen and Bob Abra- 
hamson, the Redmen booters are 
expected to experience a season of 
strong defense and low scoring 
games. 

The strength of the team, if 
veteran players automatically 
mean strength, lies in the back- 
field. Besides Allen and Abraham- 
son, Dave Hintze, Ted Lee, Gor- 
don Mirkin, and Lou McCarry

"Sunburn" Niedziewicki, will be 
the goalie. 

Up front, sophomore Dick Golas 
will be called upon to add punch 
to the scoring attack- Ken Crooks, 
a fine playmaker, is back to play 
left half, with returnees Lee Sut- 
cliffe and Bud Bauchiero ready 
for offensive duty. 

Last season the powerful Dart- 
mouth squad inflicted a 7-1 defeat 
on the Redmen in the season's 
opener. The Big Green, long a 
New England soccer power, had 
two of the section's top scorers 
on their squad. George Stigum and 
Al Wade are both back to aid the 
Indian cause. 

They finished behind only Clar- 
ence Simpson of UMass in the NE 
scoring parade last fall.

It was decided to hold teas at 
each house for freshman women. 
The first tea will be held Sunday, 
Sept. 25 from 3 to 5 pm. Fresh- 
man women are cordially invited 
to all fraternity houses. 

Other committees included 
House Maintenance, Alumni Af- 
fairs, Rushing and Pledging, Fi- 
nancial Procedure, Commissary

Any freshmen or sophomores in- 
terested in trying out for field 
events on the spring or winter

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1955 



Political Potpourri: 

Pres. Cole To Give Report 
To First Senate Meeting 



The Student Senate, after a 
three months adjournment, during 
which mast of the solons had few 
thoughts along UMass legislative 
channels, begins its 1955-56 ses- 
sion with an orientation meeting 
tonight in Skinner. 

George Cole, Senate president, 
will introduce a summer-conceived 
idea in the form of a participation 
campaign designed to remove the 
control of, and the work involved 
In, the major campus activities 
from the shoulders and minds of a 
comparative few and encourage the 
more inactive, yet able, students to 
take part in the extra-curricular 
fields. 

The idea was inspired in part 
by a section in the final report of 
John Heinz after his two year 
stint as Senate prexie. Heinz was 
actively aware of this campus evil 
which causes a few ambitious, tal- 
ented students to become so en- 
meshed in activities that studies 
are forgotten and neglected. 

Rescued Harvard Weekend 

The senate last week proved it- 
self able to meet an immediate 
need when an informal emergency 
meeting of available senators re- 
sulted in this Saturday's "Har- 
vard holiday," with a constructive 
solution to the problem of the 
classes that will be missed- The 
cooperation of President Mather 
and the new provost was received 
in full in this matter, giving the 
involved senators a new hope for 
administration aid. 

Frosh May Wait 

An election schedule for dor- 
mitory representatives must be de- 
cided tonight, probably to be set 
for sometime within a month as 
stated in senate by-laws. However, 
an urgent need for active, inter- 
ested senators, rather than those 
who run for office to prove their 
popularity, may initiate a motion 
to postpone elections in freshman 
residences until the new Umif s 
become better acquainted with 
each other's capacities and inter- 
ests. 



Frats Hold Teas 
For Frosh Girls 

The first freshmen girl inter- 
fratemity tea was held Sunday, 
Sept 25 between 3 and 5 p.m. The 
afternoon teas were conducted in 
the same system as that of the 
fraternity roundrobbins. 

Cars from the respective frat- 
ernities were on hand at the fresh- 
men girl's dorms to carry the 
girls to the houses where they 
were served refreshments and re- 
ceived some insight into campus 
fraternity life. According to the 
7-eports of the various fraternity 
social chairmen, the girls who at- 
tended the event had a good time 
and appreciated the efforts of the 
fraternity men in introducing 
their houses to them. 

The original idea of introducing 
campus fraternities to the fresh- 
men women during afternoon teas 
was the product of the recent 
inter-fraternity workshop attend- 
ed by the various social chairmen. 



Prayer, Fast 
Marks Jewish 
Yom Kippur 

Monday was the Day of Atone- 
ment for the Jewish students of 
UM, as they ended their 10-day 
celebration of the Jewish New 
Year by observing the holiday of 
Yom Kippur. 

The 10 holy days begin with a 
two-day observance of Rosh Ha- 
shar.ah, the start of the new year. 
At sun-down of the ninth day of 
celebration, Yom Kippur begins, 
and ends at sundown on the fol- 
lowing day. 

Day of Prayer 

The Jews believe that on Yom 
Kippur, God decides the fate of 
each person for the coming year. 
Therefore the day is devoted to 
repentant prayer for forgiveness. 

The Jewish prayer book enumer- 
ates the sins that may be com- 
mitted against God by His chil- 
dren. The Jews go over each sin 
during the Yom Kippur service, 
and each one says penance for 
those that refer to him. 

Fast All Day 

The day also includes prayer 
for a successful, happy, new year, 
free from further misdemeanors. 
As a further penitent gesture, Jews 
abstain from food, drink, and phy- 
sical and mental enjoyment 
throughout the day. 

Services for Jewish students who 
remained on campus for Yom Kip- 
pur, were held in Skinner Aud. on 
Sunday night, and at the Hillel 
Foundation from 9:30 a.m. to 6 
p.m. on Monday. 

On both Sunday night and Mon- 
day, the services were conducted 
by Cantor Arthur Sugarman, a 
graduate of UM in 1951. Prof. 
Joseph Marcus gave a sermon on 
the meaning, customs, and tradi- 
tions of Yom Kippur and Rosh 
Hashanah, on Sunday night. 



Religious Courses, 
Offered Sept. 30 

Non-credit courses in religion 
will he offered again this fall by 
the University chaplains, Father 
David J. Power, Rabin Louis Ru- 
chames, Rev. Albert L. Seely, and 
visiting lecturers. 

Father Power, chaplain to Cath 
olic students, will conduct a semi- 
nar meeting once a week to dis- 
cuss questions arising from campus 
life about Catholic faith and prac- 
tice. 

Language Courses Open to All 

Rabbi Ruehames, chaplain to 
Jewish students, will tench a 
course on "Basic Reliefs and Prac- 
tices of Judaism." His class will 
meet at Hillel House one hour 
each week. Also offered by Rabbi 
Ruchames and Professor Joseph 
Marcus are courses in language: 
Elementary Hebrew, Intermediate 
Hebrew, and Yiddish. These 
courses are open to all students.

More Polio Reported; 
Amherst Still Quarantined 



The Amherst Board of Health 
reported se/en new cases of polio 
in town up to Thursday of last 
week, including Kauno Lampi, a 
UM food tech instructor; and the 
son of Henry Skillings, a UM 
math instructor. 

Both Samuel Skillings and Lam- 
pi have non-paralitic polio, and 
their conditions are reported as 
"good" by the Cooley-Dickinson 
Hospital. 

Quarantine Continues 
Hayes Lamont and Allen Clark 

arc tin- only polio victims at Am- 
herst College thus far. They are 
doing "us well as can be expected" 
in their" conditions. 

Amherst College is still under 
quarantine, and gamma globulin 
has been administered to the soc- 
cer team, of which Lamont is a 
member, and the dormitory corri- 
dor which housed the victims. 

The college's quarantine will last 
"as long as the situation warrants 
it." and depends on what action 
Smith and Mount Holyoke take 
on their quarantines. 



No Diagnoses Here 
Dr. Ernest J. Radcliff of UM's 
infirmary, stated that there is no 
polio situation on campus. He has 
made no polio diagnoses, ?nd has 
sent no one to Cooley-Dickinson 
Hospital, as had been rumored. 

Gamma gobulin has been ad- 
ministered to close contacts of all 
Amherst victims, about 4400 cc 
having been received from The 
National Foundation for Infantile 
Paralysis. 

Cases Imported 

The Board of Health is con- 
cerned over the several cases, 
which, because of the disease's 
10-14 day incubation period, have- 
been imported from out of towm. 

The polio out-crop here is a 
late season one, because early 
September is usually the latest 
time to anticipate the disease.

Jawn Is Expected 
To Fight Fiercely 

A police-escorted motorcade, led 
by President Mather, will again 
this year convey a large segment 
of the Umass population to Cam- 
bridge for the Harvard game Sat- 
urday. 

A rally in Harvard Square at 
1 p.m., at which John Harvard will 
be hanged in effigy, will be fol- 
lowed by a mass march on the sta- 
dium. 

State Police Will Lead 

President Mather told Adelphia 
•epresentatives yesterday he 
"would be glad" to lead the motor- 
cade, which is expected to be a re- 
peat of last year's horn-blaring, 
sign-decorated spectacle. 

An informal dance at the Crys- 
tal Ballroom of the Hotel Ken- 
more Saturday night, sponsored by 
the UM Alumni Club of Greater 
Boston, will be another feature of 
UM's biggest sports weekend. 
Asks Cars Be Gay 

The motorcade will begin at 
9 a.m. starting at QTV, and will 
progress along routes 2 and 202. 
'arking will be arranged at Har- 
vard. 

George Burke, an Adelphian, 
,told the Collcf/iuii that the rate of 
speed of the 'cade will be slower 
than the low-flying rate of last 
year. He expressed the hope that 
car-owners will fill their gas tanks 
and replenish oil and water sup- 
plies before joining the parade, 
and that cars will lie gaudily dec- 
orated. 

Burke also disclosed that the 
busses to the game, which will 
leave from the Commons parking 
area at 9 a.m., will return directly 
after the game. Round-trip tickets 
are $■'?, and no one-way fares will 
be available. 

State police will esco. c the 
motorcade, and "Red" Blasko, cam- 
pus policeman, will direct traffic 
and lining-up procedures along

THE FIGHT IS ON 

President J. Paul Mather has declared his 
"Crusade for Freedom". His fight has begun 
and the sensation of its anouncement has 
passed. 

We at the University revelled at the 
thought of freing ourselves from the bonds 
of the state civil service commission, which 
three weeks ago most of us did not know ex- 
isted. We set aside the newspapers with a 
sigh of hope for the President in his fight for 
freedom. 

But the fight in Boston will be our fight 
too. This is our Universty and Mather is our 
representative in Boston. 

Mather's success in Boston would affect 
every person who received a degree from the 
University and every person who expects 
to receive one of its degrees in the future. 
His bill will mean a better staff, better de- 
partments, and a greater prestige for the 
University degree and for the person in pos- 
session of one. 

So while Mather speaks for University 
freedom across the state and through the 
state house, we can do our part in the cru- 
sade back home. If all 4100 students on this 
campus thoroughly understood the situation 
we are in and the problems involved in chang- 
ing this situation, and passed this knowledge 
on to their parents, who select the legisla- 
ture, this pressure on the side of the Univer- 
sity would lighten the tremendous task con- 
fronting our President during the year 
ahead. 

We wish him luck and look forward to 
seeing his triumphant smile come next year, 
after the legislature passes his bill and per- 
mits the University to capture the crown 
from Michigan State both in quantity and 
quality. 

J.R. 



Down But Not Out 

Tonight in a Denver army hospital a 
man lies recovering from a heart attack. In 
that man, Dwight David Eisenhower, Presi- 
dent of the United States, rests the hopes 
of millions throughout the world for the 
peace and security so long promised but so 
long missing. To that man go our sincerest 
hopes and prayers for a speedy return to 
vigorous health and full resumption of his 
great crusade to secure the futures of the 
youth of today. 

In the past few days we have seen poli- 
ticians already begin to write Mr. Eisen- 
hower out of the political picture. The Re- 
publicans look with despair at the almost 



certain loss of their best vote-getter in re- 
cent times. Some opportunists among the 
GOP are now turning their heads to find a 
new Messiah, a new leader to carry their 
banner to triumph in the approaching elec- 
toral battle. 

On the other side of the political fence 
the Democrats now see an opportunity to re- 
capture the building on Pennsylvania Ave. 
they occupied for 20 years. New aspirants 
will now almost certainly come forward. 

But, Mr. Eisenhower is still President of 
us all. We may hope that the prophets of 
doom and gloom are wrong again, that this 
illness may prove of brief duration and that 
Mr. Eisenhower may once again resume his 
leadership of the democracies for not one 
but many years to come. 

The President may be down, but he is 
not out. Let us all get behind him and see 
him through. H. A. Jr. 



Views 



Fauna and Apples 

The campus at night is magical. Faint drum 
beats re-echo through the still air. There is a lumin- 
ous glow from the phosphorescent algae on College 
Pond. The trees rustle in the autumn wind, and cars 
speed past the silent buildings — towers of learning 
but lifeless in their rustic setting. 

Ten o'clock at night is the magic hour for ob- 
serving the flora and fauna of the university. 

A stroll through the President's or Rhodorendron 
(this is a new name to us) Garden provides bounti- 
ful material for study. 

Figures dimly seen flitting through the gloom — 
they are trying to get in before closing hours. Cries 
of anguish from the careless — they didn't see the 
three more steps. 

And then there is the wildlife. Skunks make their 
noctnrnnl sojourns. nnnfrnid of human disturbances, 
and snakes are a constant danger — no one knows 
they are the harmless garden variety. 

The campus, it would seem, is devoid of excite- 
ment but have you ever ventured through the or- 
chard at night? There are brunches to duck and 
fallen apples on which to skid. 

There are stianpro noises which come from be- 
neath these trees in the orchard — mostly casual- 
1 1 « ■ .-; lUcfl tha one feUo.ng we know who was too in- 
tent on other activities and wasn't witching where 
he was going. 

And through it all there is a faintly academic 
air — the study of ... , the interest in .... 

Still, in spite of the mosquitoes and the gnats, 
the train whistles and the bells, the hours and the 
mornings — especially the mornings, the university is 
a pretty wonderful place. 

Oops, didn't see that excavation! 



RELIGION IS NEEDED 

The CA — Christian Association — has begun an- 
other year of activities, this year with a get-ac- 
quainted picnic in the Rhododendron Gardens for 
the frosh. In view of the large attendance — 170 
people, mostly frosh — it would seem that this year 
may be a big year for the CA. Let us hope that this 
will be a big year for religion all around — not only 
in these social gatherings but on Sundays and dur- 
ing the rest of the week. The need for a strong be- 
lief in God. has been recognized, especially in our 
undergrad days. Why don't we face the fact that 
we need something bigger than ourselves ? 



Passed By — Again 

In the Boston Sunday Herald, September 25, 
L955, we find this story: 

The Silver Masque, undergraduate dramatics 
group at Northeastern University, announces with 
pride that its annual musical production will be 
South Pacific by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Ham- 
merstein II to be presented on March 23-24, 1956. 
Given the rights in late August to perform this 
work, . . . the designers. . . already started planning 
sets. . . . The Silver Masque is the first college non- 
professional gioup to secure the amatuer rights for 
South Pacific. 

In an interview with Mr. Doric Alviani, head of 
the music department at the University and advisor 
to the Operetta Guild, the University's musical 
group, The CoUnjuin learned that the Guild has the 
claim to the honor of being the first college non- 
professional group to secure amatuer rights to this 
production since the Guild signed a contract for 
these rights late in July and plans opening night for 
March 13— a good eleven days before the Silver 
Mn«quc opening. 

F ! rst it was Life who passed us by; now it is the 
Ponton Herald; who will be next? 

And furthermore, for the edification of the. 
Herald, it is Oocar Hammerstein, III, not II. 



— and — 
Reviews 

Another Hitchcock production 
will be presented in Amherst this 
week. This is his latest, To Catch 
a Thief, starring Cary Grant and 
Grace Kelly. This is a dramatiza- 
tion of the age-old adage : It takes 
a thief to catch a thief. 

Mr. Grant plays the part of 
John Robie, a pre-war jewel thief 
called the 'Cat' because of his 
agility and sure-footedness. The 
setting is post-war Riviera where 
the former habitues have re- 
turned, jewels and all. Grace 
Kelly, as Francie Stevens, is one 
of the monied members of the 
society. 

The chase is on early and fast 
after someone who is clambering 
over the rooftops of Nice and 
Cannes lifting jewels at a whole- 
sale rate. It is believed that John 
Robie is the one. 

There are exciting drives along 
the shore drive with perilous 
moments for everyone, tender love 
scenes in which girl makes pass at 
boy~a reversal of the usual situ- 
ation. 

In between there are the laughs 
and giggles provided by some 
straight-faced acting on the part 
of the Lloyds man and Francie's 
mother, as well as the native 
Frenchmen, Robie's mother in- 
cluded. 

Also to be co-iiSiuered is the 
scenery— the Riviera in the sum- 
mer is beautiful. And, following 
the Hitchcock tradition, this pic- 
ture was shot on the Riviera. 

Perhaps the most memorable 
character is that of Francie's 
mother. She will stick in your 
mind as one of the leads even 
though she plays a rather minor 
part. She is the rich American 
putting up a bit? front— she is the 
big personage who is getting quite 
tired with the whole matter, in- 
cluding who stole her jewels and is 
becoming interested in the prob- 
lem of finding a husband for her 
daughter. 

Her actions at the masquerade 
ball are really quite American-in- 
Parisish and quite amusing. 

Of course there are the other 
little Hitchcock touches like the 
fireworks during the love scene 
-^all these and many more unfor- 
gettable items make this one of 
the movies you will not want to 
miss. 

Of course you will have to over- 
look the fact that the plot is a 
little weak at times and the 
Frenchmen all speak "too fast." 

This really makes you realize how 
much you should have learned in 
your French course and how much 
you have forgotten?" 

However we feel that in spite 
of this you will not want to misa 
this. 



It Means

REMEMBER 

Don't forget The Boy With a 
Cart is being presented by Grace 
Episcopal Church tonight at the 
Church. This play, written by 
Christopher Frye, is being pro- 
duced by the Bishop's Players, a 
traveling religious theatrical 
group. 



Cage Painted 

The Cage roof has been painted. 
The new coat of white paint was 
administered with the compliments 
of the United States government. 
The appropriation for the Job 
came out of the Education Confer- 
ence budget of $150,000 which they 
didn't manage to spend in three 
days. 



It has come to our attention that 
the large class of freshman stu- 
dents which we are privileged to 

have with us this year are going 
to encounter a most grave diffi- 
culty — that of understanding OUR 
language. It is high time some 
upstanding, intelligent, and public* 
minded person compiled a short 
dictionary of popular terms and 
phrases which would be unknown 
to those just arriving from "out- 
side." We, the editors, have there- 
fore undertaken the task. 

It will be noticed that certain 
words such as intelligence, ideas, 
ambitions, thought, etc., have not 
been included in this essay. This 
is because these words have no 
meaning whatsoever on this cam- 
pus. 

Amherst College — a poor school on 
the other side of town; they 
don't own a single cow or trac- 
tor! 
Barsalotti's — laboratory for study 
of influence of alcohol on sex 
drive. 
Bookstore — a place where students 
wait three hours to be told that 
the books they wanted haven't 
come in yet. 
CO-EDS — female students sent to 
study at the same school at 
which male students are study- 
ing with the result that no one 
studies. 
Comparative Anatomy — (not what 

you're thinking) — a gut course. 
English — a course offered as a di- 
version for agricultural students 
and other science majors. 
Goodell Library — an edifice on cam- 
pus in which are to be found all 
the works of the English Lan- 
guage (e.g., Cats and All About 
Them, by Lewis Harold Fair- 
child, or Corn and Various 
Amendments as Food for Hogs, 
by John R. Fain. 
Grind- anyone who passes an exam 

honestly. 
Home Economics — a psuedo-major 
which co-eds pretend to take 
while looking for a husband. 
Instructor — someone who reads to- 
day what he assigns you tomor- 
row. 
Labor — a form of exercise, the 
threat of which keeps many stu- 
dents in college. 
Massachusetts — an eastern state 
which condescends to give its 
name and clerical help (but no 
money) to this university. 
North College — a remarkable edi- 
fice, built by the Vikings, first 
white visitors to these shores. 
At present it is mainly inhabited 
by parrots who mutter about the 
sounds in their heads. 
Psychology — a course which 
teaches how to drive rats insane. 
Rope Pull — a device whereby 200 
sophomores pull 50 freshmen 
through college pond. 
Scholarships — payments made to 

athletes. 
Spring — a season; easily recog- 
nized on campus by the odor of 
fertilizer. 
Study — antiquated method of pass- 
ing exams. 
Teacher— one who teaches; a few 
are to be seen on this campus. 



DONT FORGET 

Remember Senate elections 
are coming up soon. 

Have you chosen a candidate? 
Have you any plans about run- 
ning for Senate yourself? Now 
is the time to begin thinking 
about this matter and to start 
making your plans. 

The Senate wants people who 
can think for themselves, people 
who want the best for the or- 
ganization rather than for 
themselves— are you one of these 

people? - 

And above all, don't forget to 
vote!

Dog Days Bring 
Prize Pups Here 

The third annual Exposition of 
Canine Specialties, with dog perts 
and champion dogs from the seven 
northeast states, was held on cam- 
pus last Sunday. 

The show was held in conjunc- 
tion with National Dog Week 
which ended Sunday. The program, 
held in the field west of Phi Sig 
and on the pond green, started at 
8 a.m. with a field trial, consisting 
of an amateur gun dog stake for 
local handlers, and was followed 
by a bloodhound demonstration by 
the Massachusetts State Police. 
Seeing Eye Demonstration 

Next was a seeing eye dog dem- 
onstration by owners and dogs, 
followed on its heels by a parade 
of purebred dogs. 

At 1 p.m. breed matches and 
obedience test matches were held. 
A parade of champions followed 
and then a parade of dogs holding 
obedience degrees. Starting at 
2:20 p.m. there were several re- 
trieving demonstrations by champ- 
ion retrievers. 

Amherst CC Aids Program 

An obrdience program with 
demonstrations and a lecture on 
the theory and practice of dog 
obedience started at 4:15 p.m. The 
program ended with a parade of 
the winners of the obedience trsfs 
Marelro Davis and Krnneth Osmun 
in cooperation with the Amherst 
Chamber of Commerce.

Admission will be 30 cents. 



A test-model of the new FM 
converter currently being devel- 
oped by WMUA will be ready for 
a dormitory try-out within the 
month, a WMUA spokesman an- 
nounced today. 

The converters, when perfected, 
will be installed in all dormitories 
not now equipped to receive the 
campus FM station. Installation of 
converters in fraternity and soror- 
ity houses, the spokesman ex- 
plained, is impossible because it 
would interfere with town power 
lines. 

A campus-wide poll is currently 
being conducted by the station to 
determine how many radios there 
are on campus, and how many of 
these have FM. With this informa- 
tion, WMUA will be able to esti- 
mate the size of its present aud- 
ience, and approximate how much 
it will be increased with the ad- 
dition of more converters. 

The station plans to occupy its 
new quarters in the Engineering 
Wing at about Christmas vacation. 
All dormitory converters will be 
installed by that time. 
The organization had intended 



to move into its spacious new 
studios this Fall, but has been 
forced to continue operating from 
its old South College headquarters 
until the new wing of the Engine- 
ering Building is completed. 



Super - Salesman Is 
Scholarship Winner 

A cash scholarship of $250 has 
been awarded to Thomas Madru, 
a university student, by Vita 
Craft, manufacturers of alumin- 
um cookware. 

Madru won the scholarship as 
the result of totaling $6155.10 in 
summer sales of the company's 
product. He was the sixth top 
salesman among college distrib- 
utors in the East. 

The concern awards scholar- 
ships each summer to its college 
salesman for outstanding sales. 
This summer 177 schalarships tot- 
aling $34,000 were awarded. 

A letter from the College Sales 
Director of Vita Craft to the 
President's office, announcing the 
award, commended Madru highly 
for his effort and acheivement.

Redmen Impress In 27-13 Opening Win Over AIC 



Bowers Goes Wild; Scores Three TD's: 
Ends, Backs Also Glitter; 14-6 at Half 

Rain delayed the UMass opening football victory for 
forty-eight hours, but the Redmen wasted no time in notch- 
ing it yesterday when they conquered the visiting AIC eleven, 
27-13, before 4500 fans at Alumni Field. 

Gallopin' Hal Bowers, operating out of the right half- 
back slot, carried the ball nine times for the Redmen and 
escorted the pigskin into the end | Ace8 Sta rt To March 

After an exchange of punts, the 
Aces started their first march of 
the day. They moved deep into UM 
territory and then tried an ex- 
change of fumbles. It worked, with 
end Louie Scarfo fumbling, then 
recovering a Barous fumble a few 
minutes later on the 17. 

Cappy Kidd, who, along with 
Dave Ingram, made numerous 
tackles during the contest, threw 
the AIC passer for an eight yard 
loss at this juncture, but the un- 
ruffled aerial artist recovered to 
float a 20 yard gainer to end Ron 
Rychlec. Fullback Gordie Bird 
bucked over from the five, and the 
Aces trailed, 7-6, at the quarter.

zone on three of the occasions. No 
thing could stop the vicious Bowers 
when he smelled paydirt. 

The victory was an impressive 
one for Coach Charlie O'Rourke's 
crew, as both the offense and de- 
fense played steady ball through- 
out. The strength and depth of the 
UM backfield and the all-around 
play of the ends made the victory 
come a litle easier.

The key play of this drive was I drove 45 yards in 11 plays, mak- 



a 32-yard pass play from quarter 
back Tommy Whalen to halfback 
Dickie Wright. It gave UM a first 
down on the Aces' 20, and in three 
more plays the winners had scored. 
Whalen himself, keeping the ball 
on the option play, recorded the 
touchdown on a ten yard end 



ing short gains all the way. The 
attack stalled on the AIC 20, but 
when Buzz Allen recovered a loose 
ball, the Redmen were close to pay- 
dirt again. 

Charlie Mellen, who led* this 
downfield sally with some hard 
running, then carried to the twelve. 



Surefooted Charlie Mellen Bowers then took over for the first

on his first carry. A huge hole in 
the left side of the line was 
enough for track man Bowers, and 
he scored standing up. Mellen con- 
verted.

safety man Whalen started UMass 
on its first drive in the second

G TIDING THE REDMEN FOOTBALLERS in 1955 are these five 
coaches, considered one of the best combinations in New England. 
Left to right: Head Coach Charlie O'Rourke, whose biography is 
outlined in a cartoon below; Line Coach Chet Gladchuk and End 
Coach Hank Woronicz, teammates of O'Rourke at Boston College; 
Backfield Coach Noel Reebenacker, former UMass star signal call- 
er; and Vic Keedy, trained trainer and connoisseur of good rubbing 
alcohol. 



Kidd and Ingram were staunch de- 
fenders, and linemen Frank 
Spriggs, Allen, and Jim Dolan 
played well both ways. Whalen is 
to be commended for his usual first 
class showing at quarterback, and 
all the runners — Mellen, MacLean, 
Johnson, Wright, Barous, and Ber- 
Qttiat — showed signs of brilliance.

Operation Harvard II, scheduled this week for the fight- 
ing Redmen, will lx> made a lot easier if the jet aces in the 
backfield can shoot down a few "Migs" early in the battle. 
Intelligence reports from the reconnaissance commission re- 
veal that the Harvard "Migs" are rugged enough to endure 
anything on defense, and alert enough on offense to break up 
all the RedmCB hop««. Reports also show that there are only 
two ways to gtop this dangerous enemy — with the cross buck 
and the trap play.

AIC came to life midway in the

UM 20. The jrrabby hands of Ry- 
chlec — he wanted to catch every- 
thing all day — worked successfully 
in this march. The drive was foiled 
by Whalen's second interception oi

As UMass tried to kick out of 
trouble, Rychlec got in the way 
again to block the punt. AIC took

point.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1955 



'55 World Series Rated Even; 
Ford vs Newcombe in Opener 



Yanks, Bums Clash 
In First Tilt Wed. 

Brooklyn's Don Newcombe and 
New York's. Whitey Ford, the big- 
gest winners for their clubs, are 
the probable pitchers for tomor- 
row's first game of the 1955 World 
Series at Yankee Stadium. 

Manager Casey Stengel of the 
Yankees and Walt Alston, Dodger 
pilot, will probably pull no sur- 
prises in their pitching selections 
for the series — which promises to 
be one of the most exciting in his- 
tory. 

It will be the Dodgers against 
the Yankees for the sixth time 
since 1941, with the unlucky 
Brooks still seeking their first 
World Championship. Because of 
their lack of success in past class- 
ics, the Dodgers are underdogs 
again this fall. 

Yanks* 21st Flag 

The Yanks, who won their 21st 
flag in the last 35 years with a 
victory streak in the home stretch, 
are still the "money" team of 
baseball. It is expected that mana- 
ger Stengel, with a personal Yan- 
kee World Series record of 5-0, 
will send Tommy Byrne, Bob Tur- 
ley, and Don Larsen versus the 
Dodgers after Ford. 

It is unlikely that Stengel will 
use either of his left-handers, Ford 
or Byrne, in Brooklyn's cramped 
Ebbets Field against the vaunted 
right-handed Dodger power. 

Manager Alston, who still claims 
to be taking them "one at a time" 
isn't sure about his second game 
pitching selection. Carl Erskine, 
an old World Series performer, 
may go in the second game, but 
lefties Johnny Podres, Karl Spoon-

SPORTS FOCUS 

Team Tired but Ready 
For Harvard; Students 
Still Eager, Pessimistic 



• • • 



bv Jack Chevalier 



• • • 



Williams College will play the university in soccer here Saturday. 
The game is important because it is the team's first opportunity to get 
in the victory column after a tough opening loss to Dartmouth. The 
game is important because it prohibits at least eleven Redmen rooters 
from going to Harvard. The soccer team becomes a pitied group, not 
because they have a game (they genuinely enjoy their sport) but be- 
cause they cannot enjoy the festivities in Harvard. 

But chin up, boys, the Harvard trip won't be too much fun any- 
way. The Boston censors have banned liquor in the Stadium. Too bad 
the Ivy League can't hold it. 

The football team, however, IS going. The team is tired, and 
will have only four days rest between games. The gates of Alumni 
Field will probably be locked tomorrow and Thursday, because Coach 
Charlie O'Rourke likes secret practices. Maybe he has no new plays; 
maybe he won't spring an "I" formation or a 4-4-4 defense on the 
Crimson, but he'll have secret practice. He did last year . . . and won. 

Stadium Jitters Absent 

The Redmen, as a whole, are optimistic. They feel they have a 
more experienced team than last year, and will have no Stadium jitters. 

The students are eager for the weekend, but for the most part 
pessimistic about the ball game. The well-versed student will tell you 
that Harvard has veteran backs this fall, and will present a stronger 
attack than last fall. Then the student will remark on the coming 
motorcade. He'll tell you that Harvard has a big line, led by Captain 
Billy Meigs, and will add that they have depth that we should envy. 
Then he'll comment on the big rally in Harvard square. 

If you continue to ask this breezy student his opinion hell say 
that Harvard lost by only six points last year, and this season they 
are two touchdowns better, while we are the same, approximately. 
Then he'll take off about his seat at the game, and his gorgeous date. 
His final argument on the game will be "Harvard is gunning for us 
this year. There'll be no surprise. ■ Then hell grin, say "See you at 
th VICTORY dance," and leave. 

We don't expect defeat this season, and we aren't in the tiniest 
sense cocky. We will play 60 minutes and do our best. After all, de- 
sire is still wearing a Maroon and White uniform. 



YOU'LL BOTH GO FOR THIS ClOARfcTTIsl

Horn Paces UMass Harriers 
To 25 - 30 Win Over Indians 

Squeaky Finishes In 23:00.5 For First Win 

The first offical athletic event 
of the 1955-56 season was an im- 
portant success for the university, 
as the cross country team defeated 
strong Dartmouth, 25-30, Friday 
afternoon here. 

Bob "Squeaky" Horn, starting 
his third season as a standout 
track man in any season, was the 
individual winner of the race, 
breaking the tape after 23:00.5 
min. of trotting. It was his 11th 
victory in 16 varsity cross country 
races over a two and a half year 
span. 

The victory was a sweet one for 
Coach Bill Footrick, because the 
visiting Dartmouth runners were 
a highly-rated group. The UM 
coach was pleased that his squad 
could cope with so strong an oppo- 
nent in the season's first race.

Basketball Champ 
Of YanCon To Get 
NCAA Berth In ' 56 



For the first time in history an 
automatic invitation to the NCAA 
basketball tournment will be re- 
served for the champions of the 
Yankee Conference in 1955-56. 

The Conference of New Eng- 
land State universities is one of 
three new "automatics" announced 
by the NCAA to swell the field to 
25 teams. Others joining this sta- 
tus will be the Ohio Valley Con- 
ference and the California Basket- 
ball Asociation. In all, 17 confer- 
ence champions and eight at-large 
teams will make up tho NCAA 
field. 

Under the 1956 draw the Yan- 
kee Conference champions will 
meet the Ivy league champions, 
also an automatic qualifier, on 
March 12 or 13. 

Members of the Yankee Confer- 
ence are UMass, the University 
of Connecticut, University of 
Maine, University of New Hamp- 
shire, University of Rhode Island 
and University of Vermont- 
Connecticut teams have domin- 
ated conference play in seven of 
the past eight years, with Rhode 
Island breaking through for its 
lone championship in 1950. The 
Huskies were in the NCAA tourn- 
ament field in 1954, but last year 
rejected the bid to accept a spot 
in the National Invitational 
Tournament, at Madison Square 
Garden. 



versity record Friday, finished ap- 
proximately 150 yards ahead of 
the Indian captain, Don Brew. 
Squeak was in command all the 
way, starting and finishing 
strong, and pacing himself nicely 
over the hils and dales. 

Co-captain Wil Lepkowski came 
in third with a good time of 24:16. 
Lepkowski, nonnally a siow star- 
ter in the fall season, is expected 
to give Horn a battle for top 
honors when the campaign gets a 
little older. 

Chisholm Comes Through 
The fourth man to cross the 
finish line was Lee Chisholm 
and Coach Footrick .was wearing 
his biggest smile at that point. 
For Chisholm, a returning service- 
man, showed himself to be a good 
runner, and finished only a second 
behind Lepkowski. His showing 
means that UMass will have 
depth this season -a factor neces- 
sary in Conference and New Eng- 
land meets. 

The fourth and fifth UM 
scorers were Dave Hjerpe and 
Dick Rikert. Hjerpe, a soph, and 
Rikert, a senior, will probobly 
fight it out for fifth slot when 
the season gets rolling. 

Schwarz Not Ready Yet 
Pete Schwarz, the amazing 
harrier of last year's freshman 
squad, was about four minutes 
slower than usual, and came in a 
slow fourteenth. But Schwarz 
had only two days of practice 
under his belt, and was nowhere 
near perfect condition. By mid- 
October, Schwarz should have his 
time cut from 27 minutes to 23. 

UMass finishers in the race Fri- 
day were numbers 1-3-4-8-9- mak- 
ing their 25 point total. A perfect 
stoic in cross country is 15. 

The harriers will get their next 
test this weekend when they tan- 
gle with another Ivy League op- 
ponent, Harvard, at Cambridge. 
The race will be held Friday at 
3 p.m.

UMass Battles Gamely But Offense Fails 



ti^AlKlib "iriKKer' BURKE 



George "Trigger" Burke, uni- 
versity basketball star, has re- 
ceived honorable mention on 
Chuck Taylor's 1954-55 All- 
American basketball team. 

Burke, who was second in 
Yankee Conference scoring last 
winter, was informed of the 
honor recently, and the report 
has been confirmed. Chuck 
Taylor's All- America, a highly 
regarded team, is selected by 
coaches and experts — not by the 
press. Burke scored over 400 
points last year and threatened 
the all time university mark 
held by Bill Prevey.

World Series . . . 

Continued from page 6 

Brooklyn captain and shortstop, 
has seen his team lose to the 
Yanks in seven games in 1947 and 
1952, six games in 1941 and 1953, 
and five games in 1949. 

The Dodgers will use only one 
new face in their quest for the 
Holy Grail of baseball. Don Zim- 
mer, standout second baseman, 
will open at that position. The 
Yankee starting lineup has no new 
faces from the roster of the 1953 
series when they last faced Brook- 
lyn. 

No Rest For Pitchers 

It will probably be a hitt. r's 
series. Both teams have rather 
weak pitching staffs for pennant 
winners, and neither club will be 
nervous in front of the World 



Series crowd. Brooklyn, on paper, 
has baseball's best batting attack, 
and, if everyone is clicking, could 
make short work of New York. 

The Dodgers' question marks are 
three. Gil Hodgas, Jackie Robinson, 
and Roy Campeniia 'nave all ex- 
perienced slumps during the class- 
ic. The rest of the Dodgers lineup, 
including Duke Snider, Carl Fur- 
illo. ami Reese, always get their 
base hits. If the first three are 
hitting, then look out, New York! 

As for the Yanks, the fan can 
be sure they'll hit. Yogi Berra, 
Mickey Mantle, Joe Collins, Billy 
Martin, and Hank Bauer will form 
a strong lineup for Dodgers pitch- 
ers to face. Bill Skowron, Ed Rob- 
inson, and Elston Howard on the 
bench could do damage. 

The Yanks will hit, and Brook- 
lyn will have to hit harder to win. 
We are looking forward to a great 
series and are predicting nothing. 
Nothing, that is, except a Dodger 
revenge victory in six games or 
less. J.C. 



The university soccer team came 
close to winning its second game 
in seventeen tries against Dart- 
mouth Friday. However, the power- 
ful Indians, New England cham- 
pions in 1953 and 54, held on tight 
for a 20 victory in the season's 
opener at Alumni Field. 

The UMass defense, touted as 
one of the area's strongest because 
of the presence of several letter- 
men, gave a goal to the winners 
in the first period, and then turned 
things over to the offense. 

For forty minutes, with the Red- 
men down a goal, they stormed 
into enemy territory with a bar- 
rage of passes and shots, but the 
Big Green forces were equal to 
the challenge. Dartmouth goal 
tender Clem Malin was brilliant 
in the nets, stopping every shot 
UMass could get off. 

Green Score Again 
Late in the final period, with the 
Redmen caught downfield, the In- 
dians added a quick insurance goal 
to clinch the victory. 

The first tally of the season was 
recorded at 14:41 of the initial 
quarter. A pretty pass play set up 
Ron Chilcote in front of the nets 
and he slammed the ball past UM 
goalie Chuck Niedzwiecki, who 
had no chance on the play. 

Downfield sallies by the Redmen 
were fast and furious for the re- 
mainder of the first half and into 
the second. Ken Crooks, Bud 
Bauchiero, Dick Golas, and Lou 
McCarry weaved a network of 
passes that fooled the Indians. 
But when an attacker got clear 
for a shot, the clever Malin made 
the save. He tasted a lot of Alum- 
ni mud. 

Shepard Connects 
In the final five minutes a long 
kick down the sidelines set up Dave 
Shepard for the decisive goal. His 



shot just made it into an upper 
corner of the nets. 

The UMen will play again this 
Saturday when they entertain 
Williams College here at 3 p.m.

Dorm Counselors Meet Split; 
Sophomore Slump Discussed 



Pond Jungle 
Being Cleared 

The green algae population in 
the College Pond has been tem- 
porarily decreased following chem- 
ical treatment, George Mellen, 
head of the Grounds Department, 
announced. 

Blue crystals of copper sulfate 
were added recently, killing the 
algae. The dead algae is now be- 
ing raked from the surface of the 
water. 

Mellen described the growth as 
heavier this year, but not uncom- 
mon in water where there is no 
overflow. As much as possible of i 
the algae will be taken out this 
year through fhe treatments and 
the raking. 



Counselors in upperclass girls' 
dorms started off this y°ar with 
tha benefit of theory and advice 
handed out at a pre-semester 
workshop devoted entirely to the 
problems they are now facing as 
upperclass counselors. 

This is the first time a work- 
shop was planned specifically for 
the upperclass group. In previous 
years a more general planning ses- 
sion was conducted for all women 
counselors. 

Sophomore Slump Discussed 

The general themes were treated 
in workshop discussions and re- 
ports. The transition from fresh- 
man year when girls are lavished 
with attention from advisors, big- 
sisters, Revelers, Scroll, Key,, and 
upper-classmen, to the sophomore 
year when they are left to their 
own initiative was given much at- 
tention by the counselors. 

William Field, Director of Guid- 
ance, spoke to the counselors of 
his experience in dealing with stu- 
dents and stressed the need for 
special attention for the "sopho- 
more slump." 



Mr. Field explained the dilem- 
ma of the sophomore in saying 
that as a freshman she had 

I : ned about the campus and its 
general set-up. In her sophomore 
year, she must begin thinking 
about herself in terms of the fu- 
ture, replacing outworn opinions 
and ambitions with mature decis- 
ions. It is up to the counselors to 
proffer advice or tell the sophs 
who to see about their particular 
problems. 

A major workshop theme offered 
by several present and enthusias- 
tically received, was the idea of 
stimulating and encouraging a 
more cultural atmosphere in the 
dorms. 

Counselors * offered many sug- 
gestions along such lines, all 
stressing informality and spon- 
taneity. Coffee hours with invited 
campus guests who would drop in 
to talk with anyone interested was 
the most popular suggestion. 

Music hours, religious discus- 
sions and talks with foreign stu- 
dents were also discussed as good 
possibilities for future programs.

Mather Withdrawn 
For RC Delegate 

President J. Paul Mather an- 
nounced Friday in a letter to John 
J. Desmond, Jr., Commissioner of 
Education, his withdrawal as an 
alternate delegate to the White 
House conference on education. 

Among the forty delegates from 
Massachusetts ao representative 
of parochial schools is included. 
The president announced to the 
AT that his withdrawal was* a 
"matter of policy, just to make my 
position clear that I thought Cath- 
olic elementary students should be 
represented." 

The Commissioner says there is 
no need of appointing a substitute 
alternate for Mr. Mather since all 
of the other Massachusetts dele- 
gates have accepted. 



Election Date Decided

The first formal meeting of the 
Student Senate this year was held 
in Skinner Auditorium Tuesday 
night at 7 p.m. 

Plans were formulated for the 
election of senators from dormi- 
tories, sororities, fraternities, and 
commuters on Friday, Sept. 7. 

Of the 19 senators present at

at the University. 

Dr. William J. Lord was ap- 
pointed to the Cooperative Exten- 
sion Service Staff and will be in

Three Mens' Dorms 
Choose '55 Officials 

The house officers of three dor- 
mitories in the men's quadrangle 
have recently been announced. 

In the new Van Meter House, 
Robert Cole was elected president, 
William Burke is the new treas- 
urer and Donald Osborne and Ger- 
ald Tuttle are social chairman and 
athletic counselor respectively as 
a result of last week's election. 

Elected to the House Council 
were Edward Sullivan, Donald 
Dwight, Richard Ham, and Rod- 
ney Route. 

At last Monday's election in 
Greenough, Mark Miller was 
elected president and Robert Fra- 
zier was selected to be house treas- 

urt ■»-. 

Office rs of Butterfleld House 
elected recently are Paul Mac- 
Eachem, president; Stuart Butler, 
treasurer; John Magoon, vice 
president, and John Chevalier, 
athletic manager. 



are open in next week's elections. 

Nomination papers may be ob- 
tained today by dorm residents 
from their house chairmen, while 
commuters, married students, and 
those living at fraternity or soror- 
ity houses may pick up their 
papers at the dean's office. 

Papon must be returned to 
wherever they were obtained by 
Wednesday, Oct. 5. 

Womens Affairs to Talk to Frosh 

Four representatives from the 
Senate Committee on Women's Af- 
fairs will speak to freshman wom- 
en in their dorms Monday night 
at 10 p.m. about the Senate and 
the comoing elections. 

Lois Toko with either Marilyn 
Peach or Deirdre MacLeod will 
talk in Arnold, and Mania Wine- 
gard and Mona Harrington in 
Crabtree. 

The Senate had previously 
planned to push the freshman elec- 
tions for Senate back until after 
Dean's Saturday. A constitution- 
al amendment would be necessary, 
as the rules state that, elections 
must be held three weeks after 
school begins. Since such a change 
would take too long at this time, 
such provisions may be made for 
next year's frosh election. 

Invite Mather To Speak 

Richard Keogh moved that Pres- 
ident Mather be invited to the first 
Senate meeting after the election 
of class officers, to outline to the 
Senate how student government 
can help pass his "Freedom Bill" 
through the legislature. His mo- 
tion was passed. 

The Senate discussed Mona Har- 
rington's motion to have an agen- 
da of the motions to be made at a 
Senate meeting passed in to the 
Senate secretary on the previous 
Thursday. 

A motion not on the agenda 



could not be brought up for dis- 
cussion unless the Senate by a 
majority vote decided to act on it. 
The agenda, published in the Col- 
legian* would inform senators 
ahead of time of the issues to be 
discussed, and would stimulate 
campus interest in them, and in 
the senate. 

The motion was tabled until the 
next meeting because it involves 
an amendment to the senate by- 
laws. According to the present by- 
laws, no change may be made in 
them until the next Senate BMN t- 
ing. 

Complaints On New Dorms 

Edmund Skillings moved that 
$50 be appropriated for ten new 
ashstands in the Commuters' Room 
in Memorial Hall. It was referred 
to the Finance Committee. 

Roger Babb commented on the 
fact that Van Meter Hall has bunk 
beds and only one desk in a room. 
He said that the rooms were too 
small. 

President Cole stated that the 
senate should investigate the prob- 
lem, and make recommendations to 
the Alumni Building Association, 
before they begin building Van 
Meter's two new wings. 

A motion was made by Roger 
Babb to have the Committee on 
Buildings, and Grounds investigate 
the lack of nets at the tennis 
courts, and the possibility of put- 
ting the lights of the extinct hock- 
ey rink in back of Fernald Hall 
there for night tennis. It was 
passed. 

Infirmary Investigation Closed 

President Cole gave a report on 
the results of the Senate's investi- 
gation of the Infirmary. The Uni- 
versity Health Council and a Har- 
vard University medical official 
have looked over the investigation 
committee's report. 

They found 15 affidavits from 
students stating mal-treatment, 
out of the 4,000 cases that pass 
through the infirmary in a year. 
Ten affidavits were found incor- 
rect, and two were "common mis- 
calculations." 

The Dean's office reported that

SEE YOU THEAH! 

Last year a triumphant UM team de- 
feated Harvard amid their tremendously spir- 
ited followers. This defeat astonished sport 
annals. Not only was Boston shocked by 
mighty Harvard's defeat, but also UM was 
supported by such a large percentage of 
students, alurnni, teachers and friends. This 
did more for the name and prestige of the 
school than any articles or pictures had done 
before. 

It is a big question whether we can dupli- 
cate this feat again, but we think it can be 
done. Whether or not our team wins is not 
the most important issue. It is rather 
whether we are proud enough of our team 
and our school to make the effort, vocally 
and whole-heartedly, to support our boys. 
Our school is striving to get into the big 
leagues in sport channels. Harvard is a 
stepping-stone to this. 

One way to make our school known is 
to have a ball team supported by an active 
student body. This means that each and 
everyone of us must go to Harvard Stadium 
and really yell for the team. This is the least 
we can do for a team that is fighting so hard 
for us. 

The administration is co-operating earn- 
estly. Classes scheduled for Saturday have 
been postponed. A motorcade led by the 
president will drive to Boston. At 1 p.m. in 
Harvard Square there will be a rally at which 
time Mat Sgan will hang John Harvard. Then 
follows the game. Don't be selfish and de- 
prive yourself of such a treat. — Be there! 

The cheerleaders, with the addition of 
the men, have worked very hard to plan a 
program complete with cheers and acrobatics. 
The Precisionettes have been perfecting some 
fancy new formations while the band will 
set the half-time show to music. 

Everyone on campus is doing his part 
to make this a great day — you have only 
one thing to do. Be in Harvard Stadium to- 
morrow and give the team your vigorous 
support. C.F.L 



Fight Fiercely! 

Fight fiercely Harvard, fight, fight fight; 

Demonstrate to them our skill. 

All he it they possess the might 

None the less we have the will 

How we will celebrate our victory 

We shall invito the whole team out for tea. 

Ilaii i '.illy — Hurl the spheroid down the field 

And fight, fight, fight. 

Fight fiercely Harvard, fight, fight, fight. 

Impress them with our prowess do 

O fellows, do not let the Crimson down 

Be of stout heart and true 

Come on chaps, fight for Harvard's glorious 

name 
Wont it be peachy if we win the game 
(goody, let's try not to injure them 
But fight, fight, fight, 

I.el's not he rough though — fight, fight, fight 
i And do fight fiercely — FIGHT, FIGHT, 

FIGHT,

tune to Mr. Lihror's son?;, WMUA will play the

Make Democracy 
Live; Take Part 
In Senate Elections 

by the Editor 
HELP WANTED. 32 able men and women 
to serve on Student Senate, starting Oct. 11. 
Job calls for sound judgment, vision, cour- 
age, sincere campus spirit and high personal 
integrity. Fumblers, incompetents, self-seek- 
ers and publicity hounds need not apply. 

No pay, but work interesting and offers 
opportunity to better the welfare, well-being, 
convenience and happiness of every resident 
of the university community. 

Duties involve spending more than eighty 
thousand dollars of students' money. Incum- 
bents will have full power to decide general 
campus policies. 

Nomination papers available at the Dean's 
Office for married students, commuters, fra- 
ternities and sororities. All others from 
house chairmen or faculty residents. Must 
be filed with the names of 20 endorsing stu- 
dents on or before Oct. 5, 1955. 
* * * 

The above advertisement is our own idea, 
but we are pretty certain that it reflects the 
feeling of a lot of students. The 32 senate 
seats which will be filled in the coming elec- 
tion are the 32 most important jobs on the 
campus. The average student recognizes this 
and wants them filled with the best available 
students. But unless qualified people run for 
the senate, the chances of getting a well- 
equipped student government that is able to 
meet its responsibilities is slight. 

Candidates Needed 

To date only a few people have indicated 
an interest in serving on the senate — and 
there are strong suspicions that several of 
them are more interested in the prestige in- 
volved in holding office than in performing 
a civic duty. 

The final dealine for filling for nomination 
is less than a week away. 

Before the students can elect people of 
the caliber needed to direct campus affairs, 
they must be given the opportunity to vote 
for them. This means that qualified candi- 
dates for the senate must come forward of 
their own accord and at least give their fel- 
low students the opportunity of availing 
themselves of their services. 

Service Important 

Service on the senate is not arduous — al- 
though it is mighty important. The senate 
holds its regular meetings weekly. Under 
the new proposed agenda system whereby 
an agenda will be drawn up in advance of 
the meeting, there will be less opportunity 
for meetings to be lengthened by matters 
which are brought up at meetings — matters 
on which senators have not had an oppor- 
tunity to sound out their constituents. Sen- 
ate members can therefore take action on 
all items on the agenda quickly, presenting 
pros and cons, and get more business done 
faster and more efficiently. 

Unless more people of capacity and abil- 
ity accept their civic responsibilities by offer- 
ing themselves for service on the senate, the 
students cannot elect a body of the high cal- 
iber and high competency the job calls for. 

The People's Choice 

Furthermore, if people "do not chose to 
run," we may find ourselves faced with the 
problem of last spring where people were 
elected to class offices by default — they were 
unopposed. This would have the same re- 
sult as that of students failing to vote. Vot- 
ing is a privilege and if we do not guard it. 
we may lose it. 



Traveling Geologist Wilson 
Is Man of Many Facets 



by John R. Rosenberg 

Dr. L. R. Wilson, present head 
of the geology department, trav- 
eled over 1,500 miles this summer 
along with other scientists from 
this University to speak at the an- 
nual convention of the American 
Institute of Biological Sciences, 
held this year at Michigan State 
University. 

Several thousand scientists from 
all over the country meet each 
year at this convention to discuss 
and hear reports on research be- 
ing done in the many varied fields 
of biological sciences. The conven- 
tion this summer at Michigan 
State University was held Septem- 
ber 5 to 9. 

A number of affiliated biological 
societies have been combined to 
form the American Institute of 
Biological Sciences. The majority 




GEOLOGIST WILSON 



of the convention, however, is com- 
posed of sections in zoology and 
botany. 

The paper presented by Dr. Wil- 
son was titled, "A Review of Brit- 
ish and American Micropaleobo- 
tanical Literature." It was part of 
a symposium on world miccofossil 
literature. This is a field in which 
Dr. Wilson has been doing re- 
search for more than 20 years. 

Starting his college life at the 
University of Wisconsin, and then 
in the University of Leeds in Eng- 
land, Dr. Wilson continued studies 
in his field in this country, and re- 
ceived his doctorate at the Univer- 
sity of Wisconsin. He then taught 
at a mid-western college, before 
joining the Department of Geology 
and Mineralogy here ten years 
ago. 

Besides his regular job as head 
)f our geology department, Dr. 
Wilson is also currently a visiting 
lecturer at New York University 
and consulting geologist fc- Stan- 
dard Oil Company of Nev /ersey. 



VIEWS 

— AND — 

REVIEWS 



Life passed us by — we wept; 
The Boston Herald denied us first 
rights — we sobbed; and we passed 
an alumnus by — what happens? 
Nothing, except for the screams of 
the umpteen people who cornered 
us since Tuesday and said: Don't 
YOU know who John Michael 
Hayes is? Besides being a member 
of the class of '41 MSC, he is re- 
sponsible for the scripting of To 
Cutrk a Thu f. 

He also came mighty close to 
hitting the jackpot this spring 
when he was nom i n I ltd for an 
Oscar for his outstanding job on 
the script of Rear Window, an- 
other Hitchcock production. This 
came only four years after his 
first venture as a scenarist. 



i It was in the latter capacity that 
he spent the majority of last sum- 
mer in the oil fields of Oklahoma, 
using his knowledge of micro- 
fossils to determine the position of 
new oil pools. 

After two months in Oklahoma 
Dr. Wilson was a visiting profes- 
sor at the Mass. Institute of Tech- 
nology geological camp in Nova 
Scotia. Next June he expects to 
complete a textbook to be published 
by the McGraw-Hill Book Com- 
pany entitled Publishers of Micro- 
paleontology. 

When commenting on the vari- 
ous aspects of the convention at 
East Lansing, Dr. Wilson declared 
his greatest thrill was hearing re- 
ports and lectures given by sever- 
al of his former students. 

Seven members of the zoology 
department also made the trip. Dr. 
Gilbert Woodside, Dr. Herbert Rol- 
lason, Dr. James Snedecor, Dr. 
Harold Rauch, Dr. Bronislaw Hon- 
igberg, Dr. Lawrence Rartlett, and 
Dr. William Nutting, of that de- 
partment, along with Dr. Arthur 
French, head of the pomology de- 
partment, and men from the Ex- 
periment Station and the land- 
scape architecture department, at- 
tended also. Dr. Woodside's paper 
contained a report of his research 
on cancer in mice which he has 
been conducting in his laboratory 
here on campus. Dr. Snedecor of 
that department, who is currently 
on a leave of absdncc, is on a pub- 
lic health fellowship at Jefferson 
Medical College, Philadelphia, 
Penn. 

Next year's meeting will be held 
in Storrs, Conn, at the University 
of Conn. Dr. Woodside expressed 
the hope that his whole depart- 
ment would be able to attend at 
that time, as was the case last 
year when it was held in Boston. 



Our Mailbox 

To the editor: 

Based on what is no more, nor 
any less, than an arbitrary decis- 
ion on the part of one person, Sen- 
ate President George Cole has sta- 
ted that Chadbourne dormitory 
shall have two student senators, 
and that Mills dormitory shall be 
allotted one student senator. 

This decision was announced at 
the last senate meeting on Sep- 
tember 27 and passed almost un- 
noticed. Recent investigation seems 
^o reveal a real cause to question 
this decision. Chadbourne, by ac- 
tual count in the dormitory, has a 
population numbering five less 
than that of Mills. One is prompt- 
ed to ask, "What goes?" 

When questioned, it is said that 
President Cole replied that it was 
better to have sophomore senators 
than juniors or seniors. Remem- 
bering Cole's recent statement 
that "experience" is what the sen- 
ate needs, and his late plea for all 
previous senators to run for re- 
election, his latest action can hard- 
ly be deemed consistent. Further- 
more, there are four experienced 
senators now living in Mills who 
are eligible for re-election. 

A second point which President 
Cole might conceivably clear up is 
why Arnold House and Crabtree 
are allocated one senator each 
though there is a large difference 
between the two populations. If 
Article II, Section 8, subsection n2 
of the Constitution of the Student 
Government covers this, then Pres- 
ident Cole should be able to con- 
vince the residents of Arnold 
House that they are not due a 
second senator even though in a 
similar situation last year. Baker 
House was allowed a second sen- 
ator by reason of its large popu- 
lation.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1955 



Redmen Ready To Jar Jawn Harvard Tomorrow 



Desire, Spirit Greater Than Last Year; 
Team At Physical Peak; Kickoff At 2 

Chief Charlie O'Rourke and his Redmen warriors go 
after their second annual crew cut scalp tomorrow at 2 p.m. 
in Cambridge where UMass assails Harvard again — without 
the benefit of an ambush. 

To jolt the Crimson for the second straight season in 
their sacred opening game, and to cap the festive weekend 
successfully for some 3000 students 



are the purposes for which the 
Redmen invade the Stadium with 
fire in their hearts. 

On the shoulders of a talented 
UM backfield and a shaky line 
rest the chances of the Redmen's 
pulling another monumental upset 
such as they recorded last fall, 
13-7. 

Physically and mentally, the 
Redmen are ready for Harvard. 
Six of seven key injuries have 
been cleared up, and the team is 
now in 100% health. The spirit 
is way up, and Coach O'Rourke has 
been quoted as saying that they're 
pointing for the Johnnies more 
this year than last. 

Lineup Status Static 

No change is anticipated in the 
UMass lineup which started in 
Monday's 27-13 win over AIC. This 
means that Dave Ingram and 
Cappy Kidd, a couple of heroes at 
Cambridge last year, will start at 
ends. John O'Keefe and Bob De- 
Valle are their number one re 
placements. 

Tackle Frank Spriggs who 
started and played well versus the 
Acres, draws another nod for the 
opening kickoff. Co-captain John 
McGowan will be at the other 
tackle ,with Art Miller and Ralph 
Parsons in reserve. 

Ron Matheson, whose back ail- 
ment ha3 cleared almost complete- 
ly, will open at a guard slot, and 
will be paired with wiry Jim 
Dolan. Lou Varrichione and Buzz 
Richardson will also see action. 

Center Ken MacRae will do the 
ball-snapping and handle defen- 
sive signals. His sub, Buzz Allen, 
will play quite a bit as well. 
Whalen, Noble at QB 

In the UMass backfield, Tom 
Whalen will share signal-calling 
honors with John Noble, a Cam- 
bridge townie. The latter was the 
hero in last seasons electrifying 



triumph, and will no doubt be care- 
fully watched by the Crimson. 

Co-captain, Don "Red" Johnson, 
candidate for little all-America 
honors, will start at left half, with 
Dickie Wright at right half. Both 
have recovered from minor muscu- 
lar troubles during the week. 

Backfield reserves, who will pour 
into the game continually to bol- 
ster UM offense, include Hal Bow- 
ers, Monday's hero, Charlie Mellen, 
Biff MacLean, Dick Berquist, Ron- 
nie Blume, John Cieri, Bill Ma- 
honey, and Jack Enos. Mellen is 
recovering from a charley horse, 
and may not do much except boot 
five or six extra points Saturday. 

Harvard, under Coach Lloyd 
Jordan, is the defending Big Three 
titlist, having defeated Yale and 
Princeton last year, after losing 
to UM. 

Ivies Use Single Wing 

Running from the single wing, 
the Johnnies need a good tailback 
for best results. They have three. 

Mat Botsford, Jim Joslin, and 
soph Walt Stahura can all perform 
at the key slot, but Stahura may 
be switched to wingback. The sec- 
ond wingback is George Simouri- 
an, a left-handed passer who has 
to be watched. 

The fourth Harvard back is 
Tony Gianelly, a rugged ground 
gainer, who drove the UM tackles 
wild with his powerful delayed 
bucks last fall. 

The Harvard line is weak at 
ends and center, but boasts a pair 
of good tackles and an outstanding 
guard. Orville Tice and Frank 
Maher are the big men in the line, 
while aggressive Bill Meigs, team 
captain, is immovable at guard. 
Meigs is considered as the best 
in the East. 

People who saw last year's win 
felt at the time that UM would 
never accomplish that feat again. 
Now the general consensus is that 



Bowers Wins First Welltvorth Award 



HUNGRY??

MAIN STREET 



AMHERST 



Hal Bowers, whose spectacular 
effort against AIC last Monday 
cinched the Redmen victory, is the 
winner of the first Wellworth 
Award. 

The gallopin' right halfback 
tallied three touchdowns, and 
gained 6.7 yards per carry to earn 
himself some useful merchandise 
from the friendly Wellworth Phar- 
macy here in Amherst. Hal will 
also receive a handsome certificate 
as a permanent reminder of this 
accomplishment. 

Bowers is a senior on Charlie 
O'Rourke's ball club, and has been 
a ietterman at halfback for two sea- 
sons. A resident in Brookline, he is 
20 years old, and weighs a good 
180 pounds. t 

Outside the football world, Hal's 
two activities are his fraternity — 
TEP — and his "conditioning sport" 
— track. For Coach Footrick's win- 
ter and spring track teams, Bowers 
is a veteran dash man. 

Hal had a good summer — he for- 
got how to fumble.

Harriers At Harvard Today; 
Booters Entertain Ephs Saturday 



Soccer and cross country team 
representing the university will be 
in action this weekend, starting 
this afternoon at Harvard where 
the UMass harriers battle the 
Crimson runners at 3 p.m. 

Tomorrow afternoon, the only 
event of the week to be played at 
Alumni Field will take place. The 
soccer forces of Coach Larry 
Briggs will entertain Williams. 
The booters will be seeking their 
first win, after an opening 2-0 
loss to powerful Dartmouth. 

Co-captains Bob Abramson and 
Mel Allen will lead the soccer 
team in quest of its initial tri- 



umph. Lacking the offensive punch 
of last season, the club will be out 
to get a couple of goals and make 
them good by employing a tight 
defense. 

The cross country meet at Har- 
vard today is a big one for Coach 
Bill Footrick and his boys. A win 
over the Scarlet would probably 
send the UMies on their way to an 
undefeated season in dual meets, 
since Harvard is the hardest op- 
ponent on the schedule. 

Co-captains Squeaky Horn, and 
Wil Lepkowski will lead the Red- 
men attack, with Lee Ohisholm 
the number three man.

Registration Change Suggested 
John Jacobson stated that the 
A to Z method of registration 
should be alternated with the Z to 
A method. Many students are left 
out of courses because their last 
names begin with P through Z. % 

He moved that the senate 
should back • the idea of a Z

tee will take the idea up with the 
registrar. 

Roger Babb moved that the 
Health Council should take bacter- 
ial counts more frequently at the 
dining halls until the polio situa- 
tion abates. This, he said, was a 
precaution — not a negative reflec- 
tion on them. 

Joseph Larson commented on 
the lack of attendance at the All-

ed that the senate sit as a body 
at future convos to indicate the 



support of student government.

Harvard Nips UM For First Time Since 1916, 60-6; 
Motorcade, Rally, Kenmore Dance Brighten Weekend 



Stunts, Show 
Bolster Fans 

UMass campus became a ghost 
town over the weekend as nearly 
every inhabitant took advantage 
of a Saturday off and vacated to 
attend the big game. 

The 80 cars which followed Pres- 
ident Mather to the slaughter rep- 
resented a small percent of the 
mob which packed the UMie side 
of the ivy covered stadium. Ap- 
proximately 3500 tickets were sold 
at UMass alone. 

About 650 of the more ardent 
football fllowers completely clogged 
Harvard square for the pre-game 
rally at 1 p.m. 

Hanging in Harvard Square 

Screaming predictions of dire 
disaster for the Harvard fellows, 
the crowd applauded enthusiasti- 
cally as Mat Sgan hung the op- 
ponent Ln effigy from the vantage 
point of the MTA station roof. 

The stream of students march- 
ing from the square to the stadi- 
um held up disgusted drivers on 
Memorial Drive approximately 15 
minutes. 

More pre -game buffoonery was 
a stunt by the house of red sus- 
penders who courageously put two 
red-winged "flys" flitting over the 
field out of commission with a 
large lethal-looking swatter. 

The half-time program provided 
the only point of pride for UMass 
supporters Saturday. 

Drill Team Trickier Than Ever 

The Precisionettes were at their 
perkiest and worked well with the 
band especially in the formation 
of a red and gray UM.

Cantab Backs 
Score 8 Times 

by Jack Chevalier 
Absorbing a more thorough 
spanking than the brand new Har- 
vard bass drum, the Redmen foot- 
ball forces were buried by the 
nost powerful Crimson team in 
years, 60-6, before 12,500 amazed 
fans at the Cambridge Stadium. 

Nine Harvard touchdowns spread 
evenly over the four period route 
completely doused the spirit of 
the large UMass delegation which 
arrived at the game via a 100-car 
motorcade and a mass rally at 
Harvard Square. 

Babe Simourian, a tricky junior 

from Watcrtown, was the hero for 

the Johnnies with three touch- 

! downs and a 20-yard per carry 

| rushing average. 

Worst Defeat Since 1916 
The victory made the UMass 
record 1-1 on the season, and was 
the most decisive loss the Redmen 
have suffered since 1916 when 
Dartmouth mauled them, 62-0. 
Harvard's score was the first 60- 
pointer since 1946. 

In the revenge triumph, which 
evened the score forever and ever 
amen in the Harvard books, the 
Crimson gained 510 yards. 419 
were gained on land, 91 in the air. 
Not until Coach Lloyd Jordan 
of the winners had his fourth back- 
field in operation were the Red- 
men able to stop the Harvard of- 
fense and force a punt. The Crim- 
son backfield, like that of the Red- 
men, doesn't have a bad man in it, 
as each of the dozen Scarlet backs 
proved he could run well.

WHA' HOPPENED? 

What happened to our school spirit? Sat- 
urday we were defeated by a better team; 
but worse than that, we let our team down. 
Preparations for the game heightened our 
spirit, but it all disappeared the moment 
we reached Hai*vard Stadium. 

At the rally on the square we really made 
ourselves heard so that Boston knew we had 
arrived. At the beggining of the game, we 
yelled and followed our cheerleaders; but it 
soon seemed as if we had fallen into a trance. 
We just sat there with dejection on our faces. 

No Sportsmanship? 

So Harvard beat us in a football game! 
Sure it's a disappointment but what is so 
tremendously important about that? We beat 
Harvard last year — a bigger upset — and their 
followers didn't go into the depths of despair. 
Harvard put us to shame, but not because 
they won by fifty-four points. Shame was 
ours because they had followers who really 
cheered and yelled their team on to victory. 
They showed school spirit. We failed miser- 
ably. It seemed that we students did not even 
know the words to many of the cheers. 

It's wonderful to be on the winning side 
but unfortunately this is not always possible. 
We have to accept our defeats gracefully. 
We should not let a loss dampen our spirits. 
It's far better to gee a student body that is 
cheering for their team through victories 
and defeats. It's easy to cheer when you're 
on the winning side but it really takes an 
outstanding student body to be able to cheer 
and feel pride for their team even when they 
see that their team is losing. Harvard showed 
us that they could do it. When it came to 
the test for us, we failed with flying colors.

Vocal and Accurate 

As we have said in an earlier issue, we 
believe the collegiate press should be vocal. 
We should and do have the right to bring 
issues to the student body which they would 
otherwise be ignorant of. We treat this as 
a privilege and one to be carefully guarded. 

To insure our keeping this privilege how- 
ever we must retain accuracy. This is one of 
the most important concepts to keep in mind 
— not only for a medium of communication 
but for the individual as well. 

Unless we are accurate and without bias 
we cannot hope to convince anyone or any- 
thing of our sincerity. Ore of the chief func- 
tions of the press is relaying the thoughts 
of others. Unless there is accuracy or every 
attempt toward it. we cannot hope to remain 
free of hias, since bias is t he shading of facts. 
Any deliberate misrepresentation of facts 
h Inaccuracy and thereby biased in nature. 

Although the tw<> opponents, McOrthy 

and Communism, tried to destroy our free- 
dom of the press, we have retained <>ur free- 
dom, (Jnlesfl ire maintain our principles of 
uracy and lack of hias. we cannot hope 

retain them longer. A.D.S. 



Do We Take Longer 
Or Specialize? 

by John Chaffee, Jr. 

How long does it take to adequately train and 
educate a qualified engineer? This is a major prob- 
lem in American education today. 

There are those who insist that an additional 
year of undergraduate study is needed to produce 
the type of professional engineer which our modern 
complex society demands. These people argue that 
through this extra time a prospective engineer can 
gain two ways-he can take more courses in the 
humanities, and he can become a more highly 
trained technical specialist by acquiring still more 
information about and knowledge of his major field 
of study. 

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has 
recently accepted a plan to broaden the engineers' 
education in the humanities. A voluntary experi- 
mental five year program will require M.I.T. stu- 
dents to spend 40 per cent of their time on the 
humanities and social studies. 

Other colleges, notably Columbia and Ohio State, 
have in the past attempted similar experiments 
designed to produce better training and a more bal- 
anced education for their engineering majors. The 
problem, however, has yet to be finally resoLved. 

Actually, the engineering profession does more 
self-analysis than many other professional fields. 
And the consensus of opinion among engineers 
seems to be that what is needed is not an extra year 
of study, but to do the best job possible in four 
years. 

Provost McCune and Dean Marston of the School 
of Engineering seem to agree with the above hypo- 
thesis. They both also go further and point out that 
if a student wishes to remain on campus an extra 
year in order to further and broaden his education, 
he is free to do so. 

The major fault commonly found with modern 
engineers is a lack of knowledge about anything 
other than their special field. The case of Dr. J. 
Robert Oppenheimer is constantly cited as an exam- 
ple. Dr. Oppenheimer admitted that he knew noth- 
ing of the depression until years later, and added 
that he never voted in a Presidential election until 
luao. For this a Boston Herald editorial in 1954 
referred to him as an "uneducated intellectual." 



RDs Offer Chance to All 
In Semi -Annual Productions 



But such a lack of knowledge is not confined to 
the engineering profession alone. Lawyers, busi- 
nessmen, doctors-the list could go on indefinitely- 
are finding themselves under-educated and ill- 
equipped to live in the twentieth century. They find 
themselves "intellectually bankrupt" when they look 
beyond the particular field in which they work. 

But is tbis the fault of the university? All of 
thesy men received a well-rounded education in col- 
lege. What happcned-why didn't they retain the 
information on fields other than their major and 
continue to use and build upon it? 

Perhaps the weakness lies at the two end-points 
of the educational yardstick, rather than in the 
middle. A so-called "educated man" begins usually 
in elementary and secondary schools, moves bn to 
college, and then goes out into the world to make a 
living. Did the formal education he received stress 
the need for balance and emphasize the importance 
of acquiring information in all fields of study? 
Habits formed in secondary school carry over into 
college and even into life after that. Does the "ed- 
ucated man" continue to hold an interest in all 
fields after he leaves college, or does he allow such 
interest to sag until he wakes up some morning 
wishing he knew more about government, or econ- 
omics, or literature-or even science if he should be 
something other than an engineer? 

What is needed is a concentrated effort to impress 
upon the student the importance of all phases of 
life, and to make him realize that education 
shouldn't stop when he graduates from high school 
or college, but should go on for life. 

One way in which this might be accomplished is 
to teach what are now many separate subjects to- 
gether in one course. History, government, econ- 
omics, and literature can be combined rather easily 
into a "core curriculum" plan such as the Univer- 
sity of Pittsburgh is now attempting. In this way 
the student comes to realize that life is made up of 
not just one or two, but many important and in- 
ter-related fieldB of study which complemeni one an- 
other, Sudi an undcrst and ing would carry over into 
life aft. t the formal education has been completed. 

When the day arrives that the entering college 
freshman and the graduating university student 
l*>th realize that they ar.- merely at different points 
along ■ continuous road-when OM doesn't feel that 
he is beginning and the other doesn't think he has 
finished- then the institutions of higher learning 
in this country will indeed be able to do t.h- 1 
possible Job in four years time.

Lights, camera, action . . . Take 
your seats for the 1955-56 season 
of the Roister Doisters. Yes, you 
too can be a part of this tradition- 
ally noted campus organization. 
Actor, actress, audience— now's the 
time to discover all the dramatic 
opportunities available to you here 
at the university. 

The Roister Doisters, our uni- 
versity dz-amatic group, will pre- 
sent The Madwoman of Chaillot, 
by Jean Girandoux, as its first 
play of the season on Nov. 18 and 
19 in Bowker Auditorium. A fan- 
ciful comedy taking place in pre- 
sent day Paris, The Madwoman 
of Cliaillot first appeared on 
Broadway in 1948, and is now be- 
coming a modern classic. 

Because it offers an opportunity 
to use a large cast and various 
elaborate stage settings, this play 
has been chosen as the first to be 
presented on the newly enlarged 
and decorated stage in Bowker 
Auditorium. It will include 17 
men's and 8 women's parts. 

The original dramatic group on 
campus went by the name of The 
Massachusetts Agricultural Col- 
lege Dramatic Society, and was 
organized on January 10, 1910. 
However, the group now known as 
the Roister Doisters came into be- 
ing soon after in 1912. This name 
was taken from the first Englih 
comedy— Ralph Roister Doisters, 
by Nicholas Udall. 

Shakespeare's The Comedy of 



j Erorrs, the group's 4th production, 
is an example of the high quality 
of plays which the group has pres- 
ented during its 43 years in exi6t- 
ance. It became inactive from 
April, 1917 to January 1919, but 
in 1920 employed Mr. Frank Pren- 
tice Rand, a member of our Eng- 
lish Department, as its director 
and advisor. Professor Rand re- 
tired as its directer and advisor in 
1947 and was succeeded by Pro- 
fessor Arthur E. Niedeck. 

Since the renovation of Bowker 
Auditorium this past year, the 
Roister Doisters have had greater 
freedom in the selection of their 
plays. The new 50 foot high back- 
stage area faciliates the usage of 
backdrops for quicker changing of 
scenery and greater diversity of 
background material. The hall it- 
self has been redecorated and will 
undoubtedly surprise those who 
remember it as it stood for many 
years without alterations. 

Anyone interested in joining 
this group may attend tryouts on 
October 4 and 5. They will start at 
7 p.m. and will proceed through- 
out the evening so that anyone 
Who wishes to attend the concert 
on Tuesday may sign up for a 
part in the Roister Doisters in the 
dramatic workshop behind Stock- 
bridge Hall before or after the 

concert. Parts in the technical side 
of the production or in any back- 
stage capacities are also available 
to those interested. 



The Mail Pouch 



Lambasts Larson 

To the editor: 

In regards to the letter from 
Joseph S. Larson, published in the 
last issue of the Collegian, several 
very serious misconceptions of the 
mechanics of the Student Govern- 
ment have come to light. 

The President of the senate, as 
the Constitution states, is respon- 
sible for the proper functioning of 
the student government. It is his 
job to execute the provisions of the 
Constitution. Determining the rep- 
resentations of the various resi- 
dential units on campus is just one 
of those administrative functions 
which must be carried out. Since 
the Constitution clearly explains 
the way senators shall be appor- 
tioned, it merely becomes a job of 
mathematics. There is no way in 
which an "arbitrary decision" can 
be found by reading the Constitu- 
tion and applying the mathematic- 
al formula to the situation. 

In the present situation concern- 
ing Mills and Chadbourne Houses, 
a mix-up occurred when the Dean 
of Men's Office released" population 
capacities of the dorms, instead of 
actual populations. Therefore Mr. 
Larson is right in saying that 
Mills should have two senators and 
Chadbourne one. Couldn't Mr. Lar- 
son have pointed this out to me at 
the senate meeting? or is this an 
attempt for political publicity be- 
fore an election? 

At one point in the letter, it is 
said that I have advocated the 
election of sophomore senators, 
over juniors and seniors. At no 
time can I ever recall making such 
a statement. It would be foolish to 
think that academic standing 



ent population of Arnold there 
cannot be an extra senator grant- 
ed. 

I must again point out that this 
is not an arbitrary decision, it is 
"rule of law." It is the carefully 
spelled out wording of the Student 
Government Constitution. Any stu- 
dent can sec how his Student Gov- 
ernment works just by reading the 
Constitution. 

I hope that this explanation will 
answer the questions and doubts 
raised by Mr. Larson's letter.

President

Lauds Larson 

To the editor: 

It is to be hoped that the letter 
by Joseph S. Larson in last Fri- 
day's issue of the Collegian will 
serve as a rallying cry to the stu- 
dent body to end "machine rule" 
in the Student Senate. Student 
apathy has allowed a so-called 
"clique" to gain control of the sen- 
ate and to make the "Scandal in 
Skinner" synonymous with Stu- 
dent Government on this campus. 

Last spring's attempt by this so- 
called "clique" to throw out ballots 
legally cast in the election for 
senators-at-large and the "Gerry- 
mander" exposed by Mr. Larson 
would have been impossible if 
more students had taken an active, 
interested part in their Student 
Government which annually super- 
vises the spending of over $107,000 
of their money. 

The duty of every student is 
clear. The elections^ on Friday

Press Freedom in Massachusetts 
A Struggle for the Right to Know 



The freedom of the press has 
been guaranteed in this common- 
wealth since 1780, but this had not 
always been the case. 

In 1662 the General Court passed 
the first formal censorship act 
stating: 

"For the prevention of irregu- 
larityes & abuse to the authority 
of this country by the printing 
presse, it is ordered, that hence- 
forth no copie shall be printed but 
by the allowance first had & ob- 
teined under the hands of Capt 
Daniel Gookin & Mr Jonathan 
Mitchel, until this court shall take 
further order therein." 

The only press was at Harvard 
College and in the following year 
the General Court repealed the 
order as there were no abuses by 
the press in Cambridge. 

However, a private shop was 
opened shortly thereafter by Mar- 
maduke Johnson and in 1665 a new 
censorship and licensing act was 



passed limiting printing to Cam- 
bridge, naming censors and inflict- 
ing penalties for non-observance 
of the law. 

The Declaration of Rights, which 
is part one of the Constitution of 
the Commonwealth of Massachu- 
setts, adopted in 1780, contains as 
its 16th article: 

"The liberty of the press is es- 
sential to the security of freedom 
in a state; it ought not, therefore 
to be restrained in this common- 
wealth." 

This right is further protected 
by the 48th Aiticle of Amendment, 
approved in 1918, which provides 
"no proposition inconsistent with 
any one of the . . . rights of the 
individual, as at present declared 
in the declaration of rights, shall 
be subject of an initiative or refer* 
enrium petition." 

The latest move to protect the 

press came on Nov. 2, 1948, when 

| the voters approved Amendment 77 



Eisenhower Sends 
Fourth Estate 
Best Wishes 

Our belief in freedom of infor- 
mation stems from belief in the in- 
dividual: in his right to have ac- 
cess to fact, in bis competence to 
form sound judgement on what he 
knows. Historically, the winning 
of this freedom has demanded the 
conviction and eloquence of men 
and women of the Fourth Estate 
who, from the early days of jour- 
nalism have been willing to incur 
censure and to risk personal dan- 
ger in the pursuit of their occupa- 
tion. 

Those who today work in the 
tradition of a free press have the 
responsibility to uphold this free- 
dom and to remain worthy of it 
by reporting with accuracy and 
candor what they believe to be the 
truth. 

My best wishes go to all of you 
as you seek to do so. 

Dwight David Eisenhower. 

This is a statement from the 
President to the magazine EDITOR 
and Publisher. It appeared in 
the issue of September 2U, 1955.

respecting an establishment of

government for a redress of 
grievances."

National Newspaper Week 
Marks Free Press Struggle 

National and State Press and Speech Guarantees 
Are Essential to Protection of All Freedoms 

by the Editor 

This is National Newspaper Week. As part of the ob- 
servance of this week we are dedicating this page to the 
cause of freedom of the press. 

Through the years men and women have fought to gain 
and retain the right of a free press. It has meant censure, 
danger, recrimination, imprisonment and even death for 
many of them. In spite of this the fight was carried on in 
the belief that the people had the right to know all the facts. 
We believe our readers deserve the same — the facts, « all the 
true, accurate, cold facts. 

It is a well known fact that a free press is essential to 
political freedom. The press serves as a means of communi- 
cation between men. If men cannot freely convey their 
thoughts to one another, no fredom is secure. The rights of*~ 
a free press and free speech were seen as elemental by the 
founding fathers when they were contained in the Bill of 
Rights of the U. S. Constitution and the Declaration of 
Rights of the Massachusetts Constitution as well as in ap- 
propriate articles of every other state constitution. 

However, many attempts have been made to limit these 
liberties. Libel and sedition laws have been passed at times 
in an attempt to deny the people the truth. Often these acts ; 
have gained wide popular approval when coupled with mass 
hysteria in times of national emergency. In the final analysis 
this has not proven to be in the best interest for it is known 
that peaceful dissention is the basis of a working democracy. 

Free expression is unique among liberties; it promotes 
and protects all the rest. To this end we strive to serve the 
public. 



Partners In Progress 

Next week we will have a new thing on this page — news from 
the Stockbridge School of Agriculture — written and produced by 
members of same. This feature will serve not only as a mew6 serv- 
ice for the Stockbridge students, who up to now have had no media 
of communication other than word of mouth and notices tacked 
up here and there but also as a way for the university student to 
learn what is going on in Stockbridge.

Political Potpourri: 

Keogh's Charges Stir Up 
Hot Political Controversy 



by Micki Marcucci 

At last week's senate meeting, 
the first of the year, which Presi- 
dent George Cole termed "the hap- 
piest meeting in a long time", a 
list of dormitories and their senate 
representation for this year was 
read and has erupted into a major 
political controversy using the 
Collegian as its vehicle. 

Two letters appearing on the edi- 
torial page of this issue explain 
the skirmish. 
Keogh Attacking Machine Role 

Senator Richard Keogh's letter 
sounds very much like a campaign 
move in view of Friday's election. 
It uses Cole's constitution-allotted 



POL POT 
Nomination papers for Fri- 
day's dormitory senate elec- 
tions must be turned in to 
house counsellors or the Dean 
of Men's office by noon tomor- 
row. 



That is, he is aware of campus 
problems in all areas. Even in one 
meeting this could be seen. Last 
Tuesday he was commended by 
Cole for his action in the Green- 
ough-Chadbourne breakfast line 
situation and he made motions 
concerning Mather's Freedom Cru- 
sade, the caption error made by 
Life magazine, and lighting on the 
tennis courts. 

Agenda System Would Help 

The senate needs this kind of 
attitude as opposed to the apathy 
and disinterest displayed by the 
majority of last year's solons. 

Perhaps ignorance was respon- 
sible. The agenda motion made by 
Mona Harrington last week would 
be of great help. The new rule 
would mean that the solons, of nec- 
essity, must think in senate chan- 
nels a great part of the week in- 
stead of just at 7 p.m. on Tuesday 
lights. 



duty of mathematically determin- 
ing senate representation from the 
various dormitories to attack what 
he calls the "machine rule" and to 
smear Cole and the Student Sen- 
ate. 

It is apparent that Keogh, suf- 
fering from some sort of persecu- 
tion complex, feels that Cole's 
changing of Mill's representation 
from two to one and Chadbourne's 
(Keogh's borough) from one to 
two was a move against the re- 
election of Keogh. Cole's letter ex- 
plains the change. The figures he 
obtained were the respective capa- 
cities of the two dorms, but he was 
not informed that Chadboume was 
not filled. How could this be any- 
thing but an honest mechanical er- 
ror? 

Keogh Gets Things Done 

Larson's and Keogh's tactics 
have createt. confusion in many 
minds. The senate seems to be a 
widely separated group, observed 
the campus, for why didn't LmMH 
bring his quarrel to Cole in person 
and point out his error? Cole knew 
nothing of the objections until Lar- 
son's letter of protest appeared in 
last Friday's Collegian. 

Keogh, without question the 
most colorful senator, is a worker. 

College Board 
Contest Open 

The annua! contest for member- 
ship on the College Board of 
Mademoiselle magazine is current- 
ly being conducted and is open to 
all undergraduate college women. 

Applications may be made in one 
of four ways: write a critique of 
the Aug., Sept., Oct, or Nov. is- 
sues; draw a cartoon series on any 
phase of college life or illustrate 
any story published in Mademoi- 
selle during the past year; des- 
cribe and illustrate a weekend 
wardrobe for a girl at your school; 
do layout or copy for a promotion- 
al piece encouraging students to 
enter the College Board contest. 

The deadline is Nov. 30. 

Succesful candidates will be noti- 
fied of acceptance before Christ- 
mas. 



Zeender Speaker At 
IRC Meeting Wed. 

Professor John Zeender of the 
history department will speak at 
the first meeting of the Interna- 
tional Relations Club tomorrow. 

The meeting will be held at the 
Farley 4-H Clubhouse at 7 p.m. 
Wednesday. 

Mr. Zeender returned to campus 
this semester after spending a year 
of research in Bonn, Germany. His 
field of study was the German 
Center Party. 

The talk will be preceded by 
a business meeting. Discussion 
period and refreshments will fol- 
low. 

The meeting is open to the cam- 
pus. New members will be ac- 
cepted.

"Everything Fine" 

Concerning the motorcade, Cam- 
pus officer Alexander "Red" Blas- 
co said "Things started off fine . . . 
but as the motorcade neared Cam- 
bridge the traffic became a bit 
rough. I imagine that (some 
drivers) became rather anxious

everything seemed . . . fine.''

Two Million Dollar Addition 
To Goodell Library Planned 



Preliminary plans for the new, 
two million dollar addition to 
Goodell Library have been com- 
pleted, Mr. Montgomery, head li- 
brarian, announced recently. 

Last spring UMass was refused 
membership in Phi Beta Kappa, 
national honor society, partly be- 
cause of the inadequacy of its li- 
brary. 

Ranked 71st in 71 

At that time it ranked 71st in 
71 university libraries tested for 
library trained staff and 70th in 



book collection, total library staff, 
staff salary expenditure and vol- 
umes added, according to the 
1953-54 report on College and Re- 
search Libraries. 

The figures on other rating! 
such as expenditure for books, 
binding periodicals and expendi- 
ture per student for library were 
only slightly less discouraging. 
Will Have 7 Stories 

The new plans call for a seven- 
story building four levels of which 
will be underground. The fifth 
level will connect with the main 
floor of the present building. This 



400 Pints Is Goal 
Of Oct. Blood Drive 

"Operation Life-line," the annual 
University Blood drive will take 
place at Knowlton House on Octo- 
ber 18 and 19. 

The drive is sponsored jointly 
by the Air Cadet Squadron of the 
Air Force ROTC detachment, the 
Interfraternity Council, and the 
Panhellenic Council. The Blood- 
mobile is operated by trained 
nurses and doctors under the aus- 
pices of the American Red Cross. 

The goal this year is 400 pints 
to exceed last year's 385. Any stu- 
dent may donate, but those under 
21 must obtain written permission 
from parents. All those interested 
are asked to sign up in the Air 
Force ROTC office in Drill Hall. 



The baton twirlers and Meta- 
wampee added their usual color to 
the proceedings. 

Dejection marked the faces of 
the fans as they left the stadium, 
but foundering spirits were revived 
at the Hotel Kenmore dance in 
the evening. 

Kenmore square was beseigcrl by 
a trench coated delegation from 
Amherst around 8 to 9 p.m. as 
UMies floated in and out of the 
crowded Crystal ballroom. 



floor is expected to contain the 
main circulation desk, card cata- 
logue, a greatly increased refer- 
ence room and limited stacks. 

Old books and periodicals will 
be stored in the first and second 
levels. The third and fourth levels 
will accommodate undergraduates, 
the fifth and sixth levels being re- 
served for honor students, gradu- 
ate students, and research work. 
These levels will contain the fac- 
ulty rooms, staff lounge and rare 
book collection. 

To Have Smokers 

Mr. Montgomery said that the 
main feature of the building will 
be large, well-lighted rooms. It 
will also contain air conditioning, 
sound-proof typing rooms, smok- 
ing areas and reading tables which 
seat four persons. Total seating 
capacity will be approximately 
1,000. 

The goal, said Mr. Montgomery, 
is to meet the library standards 
set for a university of this size. 
This will call for an increased lib- 
rary staff and more library-trained 
personnel. More funds for the pur- 
chase of books will also be re- 
quired. Plans for the new addition 
are only the first step in the at- 
tainment of this goal. 



University Fire Dept 
Recruiting For '55 

The University Fire Depart- 
ment will hold its first meeting in 
Old Chapel seminar room Thurs- 
day, Oct. 6 at 7:30 p.m. 

The organization was estab- 
lished with four purposes in mind. 
1. — to give adequate training in 
fire fighting and fire prevention, 
2. — to cooperate in matters per- 
taining to fire protection and pre- 
vention with the University and 
the Town of Amherst, 3. — to pro- 
mote better fire prevention and 
protection, 4. — to better enable 
themselves in future years to 
serve this Commonwealth as an 
interested party in fire protection. 

The Fire Department handles 
many of the fire prevention inspec- 
tions held on Hie campus and 
serves as roeer.r force for the 
town of Amherst in the event of 
a serious fire. Paul R. Knight '..»', 
serves as the Fire Chief with 
Dean Rolwrt S. Hopkins Jr. and 
Mr. Henry H. Skillings as the 
faculty advisors.

ANYONE FOR FOOTBALL? 

Pancho Sigafoos, pale and sensitive, first saw Willa Ludovic, 
lithe as a hazel wand and fair as the morn, outside a class in 
money and banking. "Let us not hem and haw," said Pancho to 
Willa. "I adore you." 

"Thanks, hey," said Willa, blushing prettily. "What position 
do you play?" 

"Position ?" said Pancho, looking at her askance. (The askance 
is a ligament just behind the ear.) 




13 apott—vtmt J"M^ y<mctio 



"On the football team," said Willa. 

"Football!" cried Pancho. his lip curling in horror. "Football 
is violence, and violence is the death of the mind. I am not a 
football player. I am a poet." 

"So long, mac," said Willa. 

"Wait!" cried Pancho, clutching her lissome young forearm. 

She placed her foot on his pelvis and wrenched herself free. 

"I only go with football players," she said and walked, shim- 
mering, into the setting sun. 

Pancho went to his room and lit a cigarette and pondered his 
vexing problem. What kind of cigarette did Pancho light? Why, 
Philip Morris, of corris! 

Philip Morris is always welcome, but never more than when 
you are weary and sore beset. When a fellow needs a friend, 
when the heart is dull and the blood runs like sorghum, when 
darkness prevails, then, then above all, is the time for the mild- 
ness and gentleness that only Philip Morris can provide. 

Pancho Sigafoos, his broken psyche welded, his fevered brow 
cooled, his synapses restored after smoking a gentle Philip 
Morris, came swiftly to a decision. Though he was rather small 
for football (an even four feet) and somewhat overweight (370 
pounds) he tried out for the team-and tried out with such pluck 
and perseverance that he made it. 

Pancho's college opened the season against the Manhattan 
School of Mines. The Miners were always a mettlesome foe, but 
this year, strengthened by four exchange students from Gi- 
braltar who had been suckled by she-apes, they were especially 
formidable. By the middle of the second quarter, the Miners had 
wrought such havoc upon Pancho's team that there was nobody 
left on the bench but Pancho. And when the quarterback was 
sent to the infirmary with his head driven into his ribcage, the 
coach had no choice but to put Pancho in. 

Pancho's team-mates were not conspicuously cheered as the 
little fellow took his place in the huddle. "Gentlemen," said 
Pancho, "some of you may regard poetry as sissy stuff, but 
now in our most trying hour I can think of no words more apt 
than these lines from Milton's Paradise Lost: 'All is not lost; 
the unconquerable will and study of revenge, immortal hate, and 
courage never to submit or yield!' " 

So stirred was Pancho's team by this fiery exhortation that 
they threw themselves into the fray with utter abandon. 

As a consequence, the entire squad was hospitalized before 
the half. The college was forced to drop football. Willa Ludovic, 
not having any football players to choose from, took up with 
Pancho and soon discovered the beauty of his soul. Today they 
are seen everywhere together-dancing, holding hands, smok- 
ing, smooching. 

Smoking what? Why, Philip Morris, of corris!

Wait'U Last Year! 

The Harvard-Massachusetts game, last year the upset of the season, will probably be 
the drubbing of the year in New England in 1955. The UMass spirit in the mass motor- 
cade and at the Harvard Square rally is captured by Collegian photographers Dan Foley, 
Stu Zimmon, and Richie Robertson. After seeing our "spotty" defense in action against the 
Crimson, the photogs decided not to take pictures at the "Victory Dance."

Williams Booters Defeat UM 
To Round Out Lost Weekend 

Ephs Score in Every Period for Easy Triumph, 4-1, Saturday 



A goal in every period and a 
strong defense gave Williams Col- 
lege an easy 4-1 win over UMass 
soccer team Saturday at Alumni 
Field. 

A last minute goal by Dave 
Hintze averted a second straight 
shutout for the booters, who were 
whitewashed by Dartmouth, 2-0, in 
the season's opener last week. 

The UMass defense, which held 
tightly against the Indians, was 
not as effective against the Ephs. 
They stormed into UM territory 
throughout the game, and managed 
to get the ball past goalie Chuck 
Niedzwiecki on four occasions. 

Repp Scores First 

Midway in the first period Bob 
Repp, who tallied twice for the 
winners, slammed home a goal 
from in front of the nets. The 
Williams center forward connected 
after a pretty pass from Roger 
Frost, tha inside right man. 



The Redmen offence, which lacks 
punch this season without veter- 
an forwards, could do nothing 
against the Ephs in the first half, 
Passing was inaccurate, and few 
threats were forthcoming from 
UMass. 

Ralph Ophuls (pronounced aw- 
fuls) wasn't so bad after all as he 
connected with a long shot in the 
second quarter. The fallback 
blasted a "slap shot" into the nets. 

Leo Cunningham, the outside 
left, recorded the third goal for the 
winners in the third period. It 
came from a scramble play in 
front of the goal. 

Repp "Reppeats" 

Repp scored again early on the 
final canto on a beautiful solo play 
in the Redmen zone. Goalie Niedz- 
wiecki had no chance for the save. 

The UMass goal came as a sur- 
prise with a minute letf in the 
game. Hintze got control of a 



loOM hall which four players were 
scrambling for. He blasted a 
screened shot past the Williams 
net minder for the first UM score 
of the year. The summary:

64 As Telephone Manager I represent 
Mason City to my company, and vice-

each with different questions and prob- 
lems about telephone service. Through 
public information and good business 



office service, my people and I do our 
!><-t to furnish the answers. 

44 My assignment calls for varied activi- 
ties—sales, public relations, office super- 
vision. One minute I'm describing a 
new construction program to a group of 
businessmen . . . the next explaining a 
new service to a rural customer. 

It's a job with lots of variety and re* 
sponsibility, and I enjoy every day of it. 
My supervisor is 75 miles away," says 
Jack, "and that puts me pretty much on 
my own— which is the way I like it"» 



Jack MacAUister graduated with a B.S. in Com- 
merce and started with Northwestern Bell ahout 
five years ago. As Telephone Manager at the age 
of 28, he is typical of the many young men who are 
building careers in telephone work. Similar op- 
portunities exist today with other Bell telephone 
companies . . . also with Bell Telephone labora- 
tories, Western Electric and Sandia Corporation,

Squeaky Horn, whose brilliant 
20 minutes time in Saturday's 
cross country meet won individual 
honors for UM, is the second Well- 
worth Award winner. 

Squeaky, the co-captain of the 
UMass harriers, has won 12 of 
17 long-distance races during his 
three year varsity career. The 
senior from Rockland is "Mr. 
Track" at UM, and runs the two- 
mile during winter and spring 
seasons. 

He was the ONLY UMie athlete 
who turned in an award-winning 
performance this week.

Bob "Squeaky" Horn, UMass 
distance man in all track sports,

race of the season auid 12th in 17 
starts over a three year span, 
Horn vovered the 4.2 mile course 
in 20.23 minutes. Forty seconds 
after he had broken the tape, four 
Harvard runners had finished and 
so had the UMass chances. 

Horn, who is rapidly establish- 
ing himself as the best in New 
England, paced himself at the 
start, was strong on ihs hills, and 
finished fast to win by four sec- 
onds. Captain Al Reider of the 
Crimson was second at 20.27. 

Third, fourth, and fifth slots 
, were occupied by Crimson run- 
ners, and this depth meant defeat 
for UMass. Ken Wilson was third, 
with Art French fourth and Bob 
MacLean fifth. 

Lepkowski Ends S.xth 

Wil Lepkowski, co-captain of 
the Redmen along with Horn, fin- 
ished sixth, with a time of 21:20, 
less than a minute off the pace. 
Lep had a good day, but couldn't 
compete with the Harvard 
strength. 

Tom Flynn, Lee Chisholm, and 
Carl Baker were the final three 
UM scorers. Flynn, who came in 
11th in the meet, was a pleasant 
surprise for Coach Bill Footrick. 
Chisholm, who was only one sec- 
ond behind Lepkowski again&t 
Dartmouth, was off today, and 
did no better than 13th. Baker was 
14th, three seconds behind Chis- 
holm. 

The loss was important for the 
Redmen, who felt that a victoiy 
could have inspired them to an 
unbeaten season. Their next match 
is with Williams in Williamstown 
this Saturday at 3.

Powerful Harvard Offense Pulverizes 
UMass, 60-6, To Gain Complete Revenge 



Nine TD's Recorded 
Vs Helpless Redmen 

(Continued fr<yrn page 1) 
sive fashion, marching into Har- 
vard territory with two first downs. 
But then the attack stalled, and 
QB Tom Whalen had to punt. 
From then on, it was all Harvard. 
The first Crimson drive started 
on the 27, and it took them only 
15 plays to cover the remaining 
73 yards to paydirt. There were 
no passes in this march by the 
starting backfield. 

Gianelly Scores First 
Mat Botsford slanted 26 yards 
off tackle and Simourian swept the 
end for 15 yards in the major 
gains. The Redmen held for three 
downs within their ten yard line, 
but Tony Gianelly finally bucked 
for the score from the six. The 
time of this "winning" touchdown 
was 8:3& 

Another UMass punt was fol- 
lowed by a fierce 93 yard drive — 
this one in just six plays. Sim- 
ourian gained 39 on a naked re- 
verse play which fooled UM com- 
pletely, and Botsford uncorked the 
first pass of the Harvard season 
for the TD. It was a floater to 
Simourian who nabbed it on the 
ten and pranced home. The first 
quarter score was 13-0. 

The second quarter was Har- 
vard's best. They tallied 20 big 
points to sew up the game for sure. 
TD 3 for the Crimson followed 
a blocked punt. End Bob Morrison 
deflected a Roger Barous kick, and 
Harvard recovered on the nine. 
Two rushes failed, so Botsford hit 
Simourian again with a pass over 
the tight UM defense. 

Ci : mson March 60 Yards 
Harvard marched 60 yards with 
a punt in the middle of the second 
period, only to fumble on the 
UMass 2. On the first play, guard 
Ted Metropolous crashed through 
to force a fumble as Whalen at 
tempted to handoff to Biff Mac- 
Lean. Metropolous fell on the loose 
ball in the end zone and it was 
26-0. 

Botsford executed a pretty 60- 
yard sweep with a minute left in 
the half to set up the fifth Scarlet 
score. Joslin tallied from the six 
on an option play. Crosby added 
the point and Harvard led at the 
intermission, 33-0. 

No TKO 
The relentless referees refused 
to declare a technical knockout, 
and the second half started on 
schedule. 

UMass kicked off for the first 
time in the game, and Red John- 
son recovered a fumble on the 
Harvard 29. Hal Bowers and Rog- 
er Barous chopped for a first down 
on the 11. 

A big hole at right tackle was 
easy for Barous, and he whisked 
through into the Harvard end zone 
for the only UM score of the day. 
Barous, who scored the two touch- 
downs vs. Harvard last year ,is the 
only UM back ever to score against 
the Cantabs in history. 

We Lost Count, Too 
The rest of the game was con- 
cerned with the Harvard total

bucked from the one, after a 32- 
yard sprint by slender Simourian. 

Touchdown number seven came 
in the fourteenth minute of period 
three when Simourian snagged a 
Whalen aerial on his 29, and 
scampered 71 yards for a score. 
No Redman came within ten yards 
of him on this jaunt. 

Punts by Johnson and Barous 
had no legs, and they set up the 
final Harvard scores. Joslin swept 
end for eight yards and the eighth 
touchdown. Crosby converted and 
the Rhode Island defeat of last 
year was surpassed. Rhody beat 
UM 52-6 in '54, and Crosby gave 
the Crimson its 53rd point. 

Dick Oehmier, a third-string 
halfback, scored the final six point- 
er of the afternoon on a seven

game started with the halftime in- 
termission and ended with the an- 
nouncement of the final World 
Series score. During this span, the 
Redmen also scored their only 

touchdown.

Halftime was no contest. The 
Precisionettes won the hearts of 
Harvard for the second straight 
year with their unerring routine, 
and even "scooped" the Harvard 
band. Both units saluted a new 
man-sized bass drum which the 
Crimson band was displaying, but* 

the Precisionetts did it first.

Both the Redmen marching band 
and the Harvard band were at 
their best when serenading the op- 
ponents. The medley of UM songs 
played by the home band was a 

memorable musical tribute.

The public address system 
brought most of the cheers from the 
UM side. Most of the Redmen 
rooters were for the Dodgers and 
screamed when the inning by in- 
ning reports revealed that the 

Brooks had evened the series at 2-2.

booted point 60 cleanly through 
the uprights into a cheerleader'3

The game was rough as four 
personal foul penalties were in- 
voked. Dave Ingram and Maher 
were ejected for roughing in the 
third period, and a few Redmen 
suffered injuries. Lou V?rrichione 
hurt a leg and limped from the 
field, while Hal Bowers, John Mc- 
Gowan, Whalen, and MacLean were 
hurt slightly. 

The Harvard victory march,

with sub guard Charlie Carpenter 
of Stroons A.C. chasing a Harvard 
back across the field after the

LET'S GO! IT'S LUCKY DR00DLE TIME! 




IF YOU'RE UP A TREE about what cig- 
arette to smoke, there's a pleasant 
point of view in the Droodle at left. 
It's titled: Davy Crockett enjoying 
better-tasting Lucky as seen by b'ar 
in tree. Luckies taste better for a 
hatful of reasons. First of all, Lucky 
Strike means fine tobacco. Then, that 
thar tobacco is toasted . " IVs Toasted " 
— the famous Lucky Strike process — 
tones up Luckies' light, mild, good- 
tasting tobacco to make it taste even 
better . . . cleaner, fresher, smoother. 
So set your sights on better taste — 
light up a Lucky yourself!

Senate Election Procedure 
Decided At Tues. Meeting 



Voting procedure for Senate 
elections tonight was decided at a 
meeting of the Student Senate 
Tuesday afternoon in Memorial 
Hall. 

Dormitories, sororities and fra- 
ternities, and commuters must run 
their elections for two hours, but 
they may divide up this alloted 
time as they see fit. 

House councillors will- take 
charge of dorm polls; house pres- 
idents, of the sororities and frater- 
nities; and senators, of the com- 
muters. Students may vote only 
where their names appear on resi- 
dence lists. 
New Solons. Deans To Be Feted 

Plans were confined for a coffee 
hour, to be held for the newly 
elected senators on Tuesday night, 
at 7 p.m., in Skinner Lounge. Rob- 
ert Hopkins, Dean of Men, and 
Helen Curtis, Dean of Women, will 
be invited guests at the get-to- 
gether, which will be run by the 
Committee on Women's Affairs, 
Chairmaned by Lois Toko. 

President George Cole an- 
nounced that the new wings of 
Van Meter dormitory will be built 
in the same manner as the pres- 
ent building. Since larger rooms 
and additional furniture mean 
higher rents, the present additions 
plans have been approved. 

Sam Snead, chairman of the 
Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds, said he must investigate 
whether the new campus tennis 
courts behind Drill Hall have been 
approved before he finds out if 
nets and lights can be put up here. 

Who's Who Committee Named 

The Senate approved a commit- 
tee named by Cole to nominate 30 
students (juniors and seniors) to 
Who's Who In American Colleges, 
by Oct. 24. 

Committee members include 
Pauline LeClair, Edward Fouhy, 
Harry Johnson, John Lambert, 
George Lesure and Elaine Siegel. 



Indonesian Native, 
Dean of Journalism 
To Visit UM Campus 

Wahban Hilal, acting dean of 
the Faculty of Journalism school 
in Indonesia, will visit the univer- 
sity on October 12-16. 

Sponsored by the Committee on 
the Leaders Program of the Amer- 
ican Council on Education, Mr. 
Hilal will meet with journalism 
students and members of the 
World University Service on the 
university campus. 

Mr. Hilal is interested in study- 
ing public opinion research tech- 
niques and meeting sociologists, 
professors of journalism and geo- 
graphers in this country. 

A native of Indonesia, the visit- 
ing lecturer is chairman of the 
Djakarta branch of the World 
University Service, chairman of 
the National Committee for Geo- 
graphy and lecturer at the Na- 
tional University and Krisnad- 
wipajana University. 



Mum Corsages Will 
Spark Homecoming 

Hearts and flowers will be the 
bright note of this year's Home- 
coming Week-end. 

The old hearts are those of the 
alumni, who, for one week-end, 
will nostalgically visit the campus 
that was once their home. 

The new flowers will be the 
yellow and white chrysanthemum 
corsages which will be sold at the 
game. 

Flowers, the final touch to ev- 
ery big event, are being sold in 
an effort to make Homecoming, 
one of the biggest week-ends of 
the year, a time when school spir- 
it is at its highest. 

Panhellenic Council will be tak- 
ing orders for the corsages in the 
'C Store on Monday and Tuesday. 



FLOAT PARADE WILL LAUNCH 
HOMECOMING WEEKEND FETE 



Plans for the Homecoming float 
parade are underway in sororities, 
fraternities, and dormitories com- 
peting in the traditional fall event. 

Rules for the parade, which 
opens the weekend festivities on 
Friday, Oct. 14. have been re- 
leased. 

The floats will be judged on a 
100-point basis. Fifty possible 
points will be awarded for origin- 
ality, twenty-five for participation, 
and twenty-five for excellence of 
execution and composition. There 
will be a first, second, and third 
prize in each of the three classes. 

KKG Could Take Cup 

KKG will retire a cup if they 
win this year, as they have taken 
the prize for the last two years. 

The parade will line up on Ellis 
Drive, proceed to the Cage, down 
Lincoln Avenue, turn left on Amity 
Street, go through the center of 
town, turn left on North Pleasant 
Street, and end at the main park- 
ing lot. 

Judges will be stationed at two 
places: in front of the < m • . and 
later on North Pleasant Street, 
as the floats pass fraternity row. 

The drivers of the vehicles must 
be allowed a reasonably unob- 
structed view. The float must be 
equipped with two sand buckets. 



Torches may be carried along the 
sides of the float, but not on them.

Politics In West Germany Is

A "general impression of politi- 
cal and social saneness" in West 
Germany was reported by John 
Zeender of the History Department 
in an address to the opening meet- 
ing of the International Relations 
Club Wednesday night. 

Mr. Zeender, who spent last 
year's leave of absence from the 
university in West Germany on a 
Fulbright research grant, stressed 
the relative economic prosperity of 
the state. 

Center Party is Strong 

The situation is due mostly to 
re-investment of German profits 
rather than to American help. A 
definite need, however, is a struct- 
ufl.1 revision of the taxation meth- 
od. 

The political organization is 
strong. This is due, Zeender 
pointed out, to the popularity of 
the German Center party which 
has grown out of the Christian 
Democratic party. It has the sup- 
port of both the Protestant and 
Roman Catholic churches, healing 
the chasm between the two. 

Mr. Zeender feels that the party 
will become even more tightly knit 

and nowerfl'1 

Young People Must be Reached 

Political education is, however, 
one of the most serious problems, 
for the young people especially are 
not reached. They have no interest, 
understanding or contact with poli- 
tics, and the problem of democracy 
in the state hinges on them. 

On the subject of rearmament, 
Mr. Zeender stated that there is 
no enthusiasm or desire for an 
army on the* part of the Germans 
and the Army Bill passed in the 
Bundestag recently was a result 
of a reluctant feeling of the nec- 
essity for one. 

Adenaurer Opposed by Some 



Donald White New 
Head Of AFROTC 

The replacement of Col. Richard 
H. Smith by Col. Donald B. White 
as commander of the Air Force 
ROTC heads the list of changes 
made in military personnel here 
this week. 

Smith is now director of intol- 
ligence for Tactical Air Command 
at Langley Air Force Base. 

A graduate of the Universiey of 
Texas, White is a regular Air 
Force officer and a senior pilot 
with more than 1M year,-; service. 
Prior to his assignment here, h«' 
served as deputy wing commander 
of the 6605th Air Has. Wing at 
Harmon Air Force Base in New 
foundland. 

Two assistant professors of air 
science have been assigned. Th> y

There is some feeing of opposi- 
tion to Adenauer's foreign policy 
on the part of those who feel that 
if unification is not accomplished 
now, it never will be. The opposi- 
tion comes for the Social Demo- 
cratic leaders although the party 
is western oriented. Some Ger- 
mans may be influenced although 
the problem is not considered dan- 
gerous at present. 

In a question period following 
his talk, Mr. Zeender stated that 
the chancellor's recent trip to Mos- 
cow was probably to appease these 
unification-tending people who 
want to work with the Russians. 

However, Zeender feels that 
even if unification was accom- 
plished, a whole-country election 
would still result in a victory for 
Adenauer's party which is the pro- 
fessor's reason for believing Ade- 
nauer is not opposed to re-unifica- 
tion as has been alleged. 



2.0 NECESSARY 
D'S WON'T DO 

"Graduation from the Univer- 
sity involves the elements of both 
quality and quantity of work. The 
mere accumulation of credits 
earned with D grades will not suf- 
fice for the degree. In addition to 
completing the semester hours re- 
quired for graduation, a student 
must have made a quality point 
average of 2.0 or higher." 

The proceeding is a statement 
appearing in the Handhovk, 1955- 
56. The Collegian reprints it here 
in order to clarify certain con- 
fusion reported by juniors and 
seniors regarding the marking 
system. They have been disturbed 
by repcrts that a D grade means 
failure unless counterbalanced by 
a B grade. 

1.7 Cut-off Point 

In the section of the Under- 
graduate Catalogue regarding reg- 
ulations for dismissal, it is stated 
that: "A student is dismissed from 
frum t'lie University us defu itut in 
scholarship if at the end of his 
fourth or any subsequent semester 
he has earned fewer than one and 
seven-tenths (1.7) times as many 
quality points as the total number 
of credits for winch he ha.s btt8 
registered." 

Other regulations governing 
dismissal for deficient scholarship 
are listed in both th<' I'ndergrnd 
uate Catalogue and the Handbook. 



HALLOWE'EN HOP 

The Scrolls ftrxl Maroon Keys

pectively. 

Leading men will be Michel Kil- 
darc, Robert Littlewood and Erwin 
Heigie, as "the Prospector," "the 
President," and "the Baron." 

Of this cast, Miss Regolsky, Miss 
Maitland, Mr. Kildare and Mr. Hei- 
gie will be making their first ap- 
pearances with the RD in tMs 
play. The other leads are more 
familiar to local playgoers; Miss 
MacDonald, and Mr. Littlewood are 
RD veterans and Miss Gross ap- 
peared with the group in her fresh- 
man year. 

Cast Not Complete 

The play has been characterized 
by the American theatre critic Eric 
Bentley as a "conversation" piece. 

A list of the completed cast ap- 
pears on page four of this issue. 
At press time the parts of the jug- 
gler, the street singer and an ac- 
cordianist or violinist were still un- 
filled. 

Miss A bra m son is Director 

Rehearsals are currently in pro- 
gress under the direction of Miss 
Doris Abramson and the student 
assistant to the director, Phyllis 
Turcotte. 

Henry Pierce of the speech de- 
partment will be the signer. 



IFC OK's Colony 
Of Phi Sigma Delta 

The IFC recognized the coloni- 
zation of Phi Sigma Delta Frater- 
nity on this campus by an almost 
unanimous vote Wednesday, Sept. 
28. 

Thus, the way \js paved for a 
fourteenth UM fraternity. 

After a minimal probationary 
period of two consecutive semes- 
ters, the colony will be eligible to 
become a chapter. This will re- 
quire the approval of both the IFC 
and the national office of the* fra- 
ternity. 

Phi Sigma Delta is at present 
composed of 28 chapters through- 
out the U.S., including chapters 
at UConn, UVM, Columbia, UCLA, 
Cornell, John Hopkins, Penn. State, 
Michigan, NYU, and RPI. The fra- 
ternity was founded at Columbia 
in 1909. 

This year, the colony will be rep- 
resented in the IFC, but will have 
no vote. The colony will not par- 
ticipate in Greek activities. 

The colony will not pledge 
freshmen this semester, their first 
on campus. This is in accordance 
with the colonisation rules set up 
by the IFC. 

Dr. Arnold LtSVftt of the chem- 
istry department is t.ho advisor for 
the tn-wly -formed colony. Its pres- 
ident is Sanford Slnd<- of Spring- 
field. 

Phi Sigma Delta, although non- 
sectarian, is primarily a Jewish 

fraternity

LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS 



by Dick Mltter 



Subscription price: $8.00 per year; $1.50 per semester 

Office: Memorial Hall. Unir. of Mass., Amherst. Maaa. 



THE LAST TIME 

Our policy as regards opinion and its 
place in the college newspaper has been es- 
tablished for a number of years. However, 
it seems to have been forgotten and pushed 
into the background. 

Any opinion published in this paper is 
supposed to reflect the opinion of the major- 
ity of the staff, and, we hope, the majority of 
the campus. Moreover it is to be based on 
fact, i.e., it will not represent a wilful slant- 
ing of facts nor a deliberate misrepresenta- 
tion of facts. Included in the general cate- 
gory of facts are statements made in letters, 
speeches and minutes of meetings and press 
conferences. 

Any material which is inaccurate in such 
a way that it refers to a person or a group 
in an unfair or untruthful manner or any 
material which is slanted so that it is injur- 
ious to a person or group is libelous. 

The two types of libel, criminal (resulting 
in a possible breach of peace) and civil (re- 
sulting in civil action, i.e., in a law suit) are 
further divided into libel per se and libel per 
quod. Libel per se consists of statements 
which refer directly in a derogatory fashion 
to private or public aspects of an individual 
and/or group. Libel per quod is an implied 
statement which refers directly in a derog- 
atory fashion to private or public aspects of 
an individual and/or a group. 

Defenses against libel which a newspaper 
may utilize are truth, fair and general com- 
ment and privilege — statements of informa- 
tion which is not generally information but 
which has been released to the newspaper in 
question. 

It is a rule, hithertofore unenforced, that 
all statements of opinion which appear in the 
Collegian or any newspaper are to be subject 
to the approval of the editorial editor. 

Furthermore it is a rule of journalism 
that no opinionated material of any nature 
will appear in pages usually devoted to news 
stories, except in the case of sports material 
which frequently includes opinion. This is 
of a different nature. 

In addition there is a distinction between 
interpretative news writing and opinionated 
writing. Interpretative writing is writing 
that has added material — facts which may 
come from a similar issue in the past, for 
example. However, opinionated material, as 
we have said before, is either slanted or in- 
accurate for the purpose of influencing people 
falsely. A.D.S. 



by Anna Seymour 

There's nothing like a responsive audi- 
ence to make an orchestra like a country. 
We feel certain that Tuesday night's recep- 
tion of Mantovani made the entire group feel 
well-liked and appreciated in this country. 

Even though the Collegian may have given 
the impression that Mantovani would appear 
with only five men, the Cage was crowded 
with students, faculty and townspeople. In 
fact standing room was at a premium, as 
latecomers found to their sorrow. This was 
one of the few times that we have seen the 
Cage this full — and everyone was so enthus- 
iastic. 

Classical? — Yes! 

Although there was some doubt as to 
the treatment such works as Celeste Aida, Lar.

Help Wanted 

It seems that the long line at the dining 
halls is not due to the management. It is 
due to you, the student. 

In a conversation with Walter O. Johnson, 
manager of the dining halls, we learned that 
the chief problem is one of not enough help. 
That is, not enough people have shown an in- 
terest in working in the dining halls. Not 
only that, but the few people who are work- 
ing are putting in such long hours that there 
come times when they are just simply too 
tired to work or to care about whether meals 
get served on time. From experience we 
know that this is true. After you have put 
in four hours serving breakfast and lunch, 
you usually don't care much if anyone eats 
supper, including yourself. 

This means you too can stand out in the 
cold catching pneumonia. 

However, you can do something about 



go and Orpheus in the Underworld would receive 

from a group known hithertofore for its in- 
terpretation of popular music, Mantovani 
didn't let us down. In fact we would feel 
quite safe about going to hear an entire pro- 
gram of classical music played by Mantovani 
now that we know how he handles such ma- 
terial. 

Mantovani also presented several of his 
best known recording hits and played as an 
encore, following a standing ovation, his 
smash hit, Charmmme, Following this, Manto- 
vani made a short speech saying that he re- 
gretted very much having to cut the encores 
short but that the group had to leave. How- 
ever, how many of us knew that one of his 
reasons for hurrying back to New York was 
that both he and his manager had been so 
impressed with the friendliness and hospital- 
ity of the American people that they had 
wired their wives to join them and that their 
spouses were to join them Wednesday morn- 
ing? 

Union Rules 

In an interview with Mantovani's man- 
ager after the concert, he said that the en- 
tire group that had come over with them had 
been well-impressed with college audiences 
and the American scene. 

And did you know that only the top men 
of the organization were present? It seems 
that the American Federation of Musicians 
has a rule whereby Mantovani was unable to 
bring all of his men and had to hire some 
American musicians to fill out the group. 



Rain again! It is always raining 
in Amherst. 

And it does such lovely things 
to the campus. We have MUD, and 
mud, and mud. 

What with the monstrous holes 
gaping all over campus, the ob- 
scurity provided by a eil of rain 
is downright dangerous. 

Of course cars have a decreased 
visibility as do planes. This does 
absolutely nothing to increase 
pedestrian safety. It is positively 
fatal to cross the corner by Stock- 
bridge on such a day. 

So'wester hats with their re- 
versed visors make recognition 
difficult and in these days of 
friendly frosh, we are never too 
certain whom we are greeting 
cheerily across the way. To any- 
one who has received a greeting 
from someone whom they have 
never seen before, we are the 
guilty ones. And we assure you 
that if we knew you, we would 
have greeted you in the same fash- 
ion. And to those few friends we 
still may have who feel ignored — 
our glasses were fogged and we 
couldn't see. 

To return to the hazards of 



everyday life— we think by far the 
most dangerous thing is to be 
found near Stockbridge — not only 
in the rain. Even on a clear day, 
we can sec large "ceement mixers, 
putty-putty" bearing down on us 
in a destructive way. So far they 
have managed to avoid us but 
there may come a day. . . . 

The worst part — or maybe the 
best— is that there was a time 
when the money-giving parent 
drove a big juggernaut and we be- 
came well acquainted with the 
ways of trucks. We know they 
aren't really out of control but it 
really is frightening to see them 
come wheeling around the corner.

To the Editor: 

In the October 4 issue of the 
Collegian, a column entitled "Pol- 
itical "Potpourri" contained under 
my by-line a statement that Rich- 
ard Keogh had smeared George 
Cole, Student Government Presi- 
dent. This is false. Mr. Keogh, in 
his letter appearing on the editori- 
al page of the same issue, men- 
tioned r>o names when he referred 
to the "machine rule" and "clique" 
in the senate. I extend my apolo- 
gies to Mr. Keogh and my admira- 
tion for his carefulness. 

Another statement declared that 
the senator was suffering from 
"some sort of persecution com- 
plex." This was not intended as a 
serious psychological diagnosis, 
hut was merely an Opinionated 
phrase used in the current col- 
loquial. However I admit my error 
in writing • phrttt containing 
such a double meaning'. I'm sure 
Mr. Keogh has no such neurosis. 

I am also in error in chnrging 
that George Colo knew nothing of 
Laraon'a objections until Larson's 



letter of protest appeared in last 
Friday's Colli (/inn. Mr. Cole liad 
received a copy of this same letter 
at approximately the same time 
the Colh()inn received it. However, 
Mr. Larson did not bring up his 
objections btfon the senate meet- 
ing in which the controversial 
isues were considered. 

And, Mr. Keogh's letter ex- 
ploited an error on the part of the 
senate president to further his 
campaign for re-election as Chad- 
bourne representative. Therefore 
my column was written under 
emotional influences of anger, and 
I can only e\ picas my regret and 
apologies to Richard Keogh for my 
errors.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1955 



Yearlings Head For UConn 
For First Tussle Of Season 



This afternoon at Storrs, Conn., 
the 1955 edition of the freshmen 
football team will take field 
against the Jr. Huskies from 
UConn. Coach Hank Woronicz an- 
nounced that he has 40 players on 
his roster for the little Redmen, 
and like their big brothers, all hail 
from the old Bay State. 

Tough On Varsity 

The UMie offense boasts a solid, 
fast moving line, and an array of 
speedy, light backs. This is a team 
which has given the varsity some 
rough moments since the first day 
of practice. 

The starting lineup will probab- 
ly read: 

At right end, John Mahon from 
Brighton High; right tackle, John 



Kominski, a Springfield native; 
right guard, George Laughlin also 
from Springfield; and at center, 
Waltham High's Dick Morreale. 

Larry Treadwell, from Dover 
High will hold down left end; at 
left tackle,' Dan Desmond from 
Medford; and Brighton's Phil Ber- 
ardi at left guard. 

Star Quarterback 

In the backfield, at quarterback 
will be Jim Hennessey, a product 
of Brookline High's 1954 State 
Champs; Larry Holt at right half 
from Palmer High; left half Ben 
Gatchell from Marblehead; and 
full-back Bill Goodwin also hails 
from Marhlehead. 

Almost certain to see extensive

Redmen Travel To Storrs 
To Muzzle The Huskies 

Last Year's Triumph 
Hopes To Repeat 





NOEL REEBENACKER, FORMER UMASS PASSING 
GREAT, gives a word of advice to the three Redmen signal- 
callers — Ronnie Blume, Tommy Whalen, and Jack Noble. 
Reebenacker, an all-New England performer here in 1951-52, 
was mentioned on the little all-America eleven in his senior 
year. This fall he is the UMass backfield coach in his spare 
time, since he is on campus as a graduate student. 

The three UM quarterbacks are expected to fill the air 
with footballs this Saturday when the Redmen open with 
UConn in Yankee Conference play. The UMass offense will 
have to do a lot of work to dent the Huskie forward wall, 
which held Boston University to one touchdown in beating 
them, 10-7, last week. 



Dave Ingram, whose injured leg may keep him out of 
action in this week's Yankee Conference opener at 
Connecticut. 



All Six YanCon Contenders 
In Bean Pot Tilts Tomorrow 



All six New England state uni- 
versities will engage in Yankee 
Conference play this weekend, with 
the league leading Rams of Rhode 
Island a two touchdown favorite 
over Vermont at Burlington. 

Maine and New Hampshire, tied 
for second place, will meet before 
a capacity crowd at Durham's Co- 
well Stadium, while UMass, pick- 
ing up the pieces after the debacle 
at the Harvard Stadium last week, 
will be facing another Goliath in 
the University of Connecticut, 
fresh from a 10-7 win over BU, 
at Storrs. 

Rhode Island Crippled 

Rhode Island, a team which 
drove 58 yards on four plays in 
the final three minutes at Kings- 
ton last week to tie New Hamp- 
shire's defending champions 13-13, 
may be handicapped by injuries to 
four key men in that bruising 
battle. The Rams lost their center 
trio and halfback Ed DiSimone in 
the fourth quarter of the dogged 
contest with the Wildcats, but Hal 
Kopp's squad still figures to have 
enough left to take Vermont in 
stride. 

In comparative scores the Rams 
are heavy favorites, as they de- 
feated Maine 7-0, while the 
wounded Bears clawed Vermont 
34-0 the following week. It will 
be an awe inspiring Rhode Island 
lino against Vermont's fleet backs 
Eddie Peck and Al McLam, who 
two weeks ago ran wild against 
Union 33-6. 

Maine and N. v Hampshire, 
meeting for the 48th time, have 
their own private trophy, a 200- 
\*t ar old Falmouth Flintlock mus- 
ket, named for former conches 



Fred Brice and Bill Cowell. Not 
since '52 have the Bears won pos- 
session of the musket — a year in 
which they also tied for a share 
of the conference Bean Pot. 

This year they are accorded at 
least an even chance of returning 
the prized antique fowling piece 
to their trophy room. The running 
attack, held to 52 yards at Rhode 
Island, exploded against Vermont. 
New Hampshire's chances may 
hinge upon the condition of Co- 
Captain Dick Gleason, a halfback 
injured at Rhody, and the im- 
proved passing of quarterback 
Charlie Caramihalis. 

Connecticut Favored 

Charlie O'Rourke's Redmen see 
scant improvement in their situ- 
ation as they move into Connecti- 
cut's spacious stadium for a game 
which may draw in excess of 
15,000. The UConns, although 
beaten by Yale, outplayed and out- 
scored the highly regarded BU 
Terriers, Saturday night at Bos- 
ton, and are expected to put on a 
show before the home folks. The 
Big Blue should avenge last year's 
20-13 defeat at Amherst. 

Under the point scoring system 
in vogue in the YanCon, which 
awards two points for a victory and 
one point for a lie, then divides 
the number of points by the num- 
ber 'if games played, Rhode Island 
is out in front with a 1.5 index 
figure, based upon a win over 
Maine anil a tie with New Hamp- 
shire. Maine, with one win and 
one tie, is pepped at 1.0, the same 
as New Hampshire with one tie. 
Vermont has a loss, while Connec- 
ticut and UMass have played no 
previous conference games. 



Squeaky & Co. Oppose Ephs; 
Briggsmen Travel To WPI 



by John Lambert 

This weekend will find the UM 
harriers and hooters on the road 
and away from the friendly con- 
fines of Alumni Field. 

Coach Larry Brigg's soccer 
squad travels to WPI in Worces- 
ter to take on the highly rated 
Engineers, wfiile Coach Bill Foot- 
rick's hill and dalers travel Trail- 
ways to engage lightly rated Wil- 
liams. 

Brigg's team haa taken two 
losses from good teams — Williams 
and Dartmouth. Coach Briggs 
wouldn't make any predictions 
about Saturday's game with WPI, 
but he says he lias "one of the 
best groups in years." 

Lack Scoring Punch 

"Our spirit and morale is ex- 
cellent, but we lack one thing — 
scoring punch. However, the team 
is beginning to jell together; and 
when they get a scoring punch, 
I'd sure hate to be their opponent." 

Golas is on the injured list with 
a hurt knee; it is "not known 
whether he will play against the 
Engineers. 

The rest of the line-up is as 
follows: Niedzwiecki, goalie; Al- 
len, RFB; Lee, LFB; Bruso, 
RHB; Abrahamson, CHB; Crooks, 
LHB; Long, RW; Bauchiero, CF; 
Cutting, LI ; McCarry, LW. Others 
who may get into the game are: 
Sutcliffe, Bowler, Mirsky, Dana- 
Bashian, Hintze, Burke, Fiaiegold, 
and Green. 

Harriers Confident 

"Squeaky" Horn and his team- 
mates hope to get back in the win 
column tomorrow by leaving the 
Ephmen in the dust. 

The UMass harriers look strong 
against Williams, and are deter- 
mined not to let their defeat last 
week at the hands of a good Har- 
\anl team bother them. 

Schwa rz is the big question in 
tJhe runner's lineup. He has 
WOrktd hard all week and hopes 
to be in shape this Saturday, lb 
was a atar trackman in the fresh- 
man team last year. 

Chisolm has returned to the 
UMass scene after a stint in the 
Navy. He is expected to bolster 



tihe team inestimatably when he 
works out his sea-legs. 

Others who will be scoring for 
UM are: Lepkowski, Flynn, Baker, 
Prouty, Kelley, Richert, and 
Welch.

C^acc Chattel 



The first soccer goal of the sea- 
son for UMass should be credited 
to Bob Bruso, not to Dave Hintze, 
as reported in Tuesday's Collegian. 
The goal came in the final minutes 
of play in the 4-1 UMass loss to 
Williams last Saturday. With the 
entire Colltgittfl sports staff at 
Harvard last week, the soccer man- 
ager turned in the box score to 
this office with incorrect informa- 
tion. 'Scuse us please, Mr. Bruso.

RUM "<\appy" Kidd will be thp

visor to the leagues this season. 



by Don Evans 

Chief Charlie O'Rourke and his 
Redmen warriors travel to Storrs, 
Conn, tomorrow, in quest of their 
first YanCon win of the season at 
the expense of the UConn Huskie. 

To jolt UConn for the second 
straight year in YanCon competi- 
tion, and to prove to themselves 
that they are the team they were 
predicted to be, are the reasons for 
which the Redmen invade Memo- 
rial Stadium with victory in their 
hearts. 

Physically, the Redmen are not 
well set with Dave Ingram, Lou 
Varrichione, and Hal Bowers all 
expected to see very limited serv- 
ice due to leg injuries. Mentally, 
the team is in 100% health with 
spirit good. They realize that 
UConn is tough, but figure to start 
now and go all the way and forget 
Harvard. 

Only minor changes are antici- 
pated in the UMass lineup. This 
means that Cappy Kidd and Bob 
DeValle will start at ends. DeValie 
will replace injured Dave Ingram. 
John O'Keefe will be the number 
one replacement at end. 

Frank Spriggs will draw the 
nod again at tackle, along with 
Co-captain John McGowan, with 
Rslpn i arsons, «<oe Cardcllo, and 
Art Miller in reserve. 

WMUA will broadcast the Red- 
men-UConn game direct from Me- 
morial Stadium, Storrs, Conn., be- 
ginning at 1:55 p.m. 

Ron Matheson will open at one 
guard spot, and will be paired with 
hustler Jim Dolan. The guard slot 
will be slightly weak with Lou 
Varrichione and Buzz Richardson 
both nursing leg injuries. 

The center spot is a tossup be- 
tween Ken MacRea and Buzz Al- 
len, but both boys will be sure to 
see plenty of service. 

In the Redmen backfield, Tom 
Whalen will share the signal-call- 
ing honors with Jack Noble, while 
Ronnie Blume is almost certain to 
see some action in this contest. 

Co-captain Don Johnson will 
start at left half, with Dickie 
Wright at right half. Roger Bar- 
ous will start at fullback. Barous 
was the only point getter in last 
week's Harvard tussle. 

Backfield reserves who will pour 
continually into the game to bol- 
ster UM offenses will include, 
Charlie Mellen. Biff MacLean. Dick 
Berquist, John Cieri, Bill Mahoney, 
and Doc Enos. 

UConn, though finishing last in 
the YanCon last year, is figured 
the team to beat in 1955. Thei- fine 
caliber of play last week against 
BU, where an underdog Huskie 
nipped a highly rated and proud 
Terrier, along with a fine showing 
against a highly touted Bulldog 
two weeks ago, certainly places 
them as a powerhouse in Yankee 
Conference play.

Governor Appoints 
Cahill To Head Study 

Fred V. Cahill has received a 
letter from Governor Herter ap- 
pointing him chairman of a spec- 
ial recess commission to study 
state and local relationships in 
government. 

Mr. Cahill, dean of the College 
of Arts and Sciences, points out 
that this is a "recognition of the 
growing place of the University 
in the commonwealth rather than 
a personal honor." 

He says he "intends to use the 
talents of the government and 
other allied departments" at the 
UMass in making his investigation 
of State and local relationships 
in government. 

The commission will report its 
findings to the next meeting of the 
general court in January 1956.

When pressed for details about 
this freshmen squad, Coach Wor-

team features a rough and fast 
line, along with some speedy 
backs, and if all start clicking, it 
could be a big year for the little

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1955 



A new department of speech has 
been established at the university 
and Professor Arthur Niedeck has 
been named as its head. 

In making the announcement 
this week, Fred V. Cahill, Jr., dean 
of the Colleges of Arts and 
Sciences, indicated that the new 
department would offer courses in 
radio and television, broadcasting 
and production, scene design, stage 
direction, and other phases of 
theatrical arts, in addition to the 
basic courses in speech.

Fourteen newly chosen Naiads 
met with 25 old members last 
Thursday at the pool and went 
through their paces under the di- 
rection of Miss Esther M. Wal- 
lace, advisor of the group. This 
was the first meeting of the com- 
plete group this semester. 

The new members of the class 
of '57 are: Carol Scrivner, Anne 
Murphy, Phyllis Rawlins, Joan 
Woodward, Marcia Cotton, Rhea 
Dugas, Ann Persse, Lorraine Tu- 
key. 

The new sophomore members 
are Nancy Schule, Leslie Radcliffe, 
Jen Wrightson, Marjorie Bowman, 
Janet Beane, and Janice Zex. 

The Naiads, a synchronized 
swimming group for upperciass- 
men, will hold their annual show 
in the spring. A group of 10 fresh- 
man girls will be chosen for their 
apprenticeship as Junior Naiads 
at tryouts held in December.

Nine Experienced 
Solons Are Elected 

A total of thirty- two senators 
were elected to represent the dor- 
mitories, sororities, fraternities, 
commuters and married students in 
Friday's Senate elections. Nine of 
these have had previous experience 
in the Senate. 

A large turnout at the polls was 
reported by the election commit- 
tee. George Lesure, election chair- 
man, said that "all in all the turn- 
out was very good," the one weak 
spot being in the votes of the com- 
muters. 

Recounts Required 

Because oi the close results in 
Adams and Lewis, recounts were 
required in those houses. In both 
cases the results of the recount 
corresponded to those of the first 
vote. A recount was also needed to 
break a tie at Hamlin house. 

The newly-elected senators will 
be sworn in at a Senate meeting 
tomorrow evening and their term 
will extend to the time of the Sen- 
ate elections next fall. 



GRAMTEVILLE, MASSACHUSETTS, a community not hi* 

enough to h.ne | mayor or even a selectman, is represented T\\ ICE 
in the unlveraltj itudeal senate. Junior Mona Harrington and 
her «.i>ter. Susan. were elected to the governing body in I rida\\ 
voting .Mona, a house chairman at l\no«lton, is the managing 
editor of the Collegian, while si-,t,.r Bae is a Collegian buff. This 
pair promises to rival any sister art on campus. M mo\e over Mari- 
lyn and Frannie, and make room for Mo arnd .S'ue. 



Dik Places Second 
In Ayrshire Judging 

A UMass senior, David Dik, 
placed second among more than 
100 contestants in judging Ayr- 
shire dairy cattle at the National 
Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judg- 
ing Contest at Waterloo, Iowa on 
Oct. 2. 

Nathaniel Trull, placed seventh 
in the same contest, with the 
UMass judging team placing fifth 
in this division. 

In a close contest won by Cor- 
nell, the CM ass team placer! 2f»t h 
in judging all breeds anionic ;\,\ 
teams from the V , S, and Canada, 
defeating Michigan State, and 
other large schools. 

Coached by J. Murray Elliot of 
the Department of Dairy and Ani- 
mal Science, the team consisted of 
John Rnttis, Harold Boeder, Dik. 
and Trull. 



Bishop's Players 
To Perform Here 

The Bishop's Players, a trav- 
elling professional troupe, will 
present a dramatization of Mel- 
ville's short novel, Billy Bud, in 
Old Chapel on Monday, Oct. 17, 
at 8 p.m. 

The Players are the same com- 
pany that performed Christopher 
Fry's The Boy With a Cart at 
Grace Episcopal Church on Sept. 
27. The purpose of the group is 
the revival of drama as an em- 
bodiment of religious faith. 
Kudin lands Group 

The performance is under the 
joint auspices of the English de- 
partment, the speech department, 
and the Fine Arts Council. 

Seymour Rudin, of the English 
department, in a review of The 
Boy With a Cart for the CEA 
Critu-, national publication of the 
College English Association, said 
of the company that he has "rare- 
ly seen a group seize so imagina- 
tively and effortlessly as doge the 
Bishop's Company the opportunity 
of suggesting by speech and move- 
ment alone the time and place 
and atmosphere of the dramatic 
action. 



Police Issue 
Parade Rules 

Rules for participation in the 
float parade issued today by cam- 
pus police and the university fire 
department state that all floats 
must carry at least one fire ex- 
tinguisher. 

Floats will be inspected before 
the parade and sand buckets will 
not be accepted as substitutes. 

Any unauthorized vehicle in the 
parade will be stopped by campus 
police and its driver will have to 
appear at the Hampshire County 
Court the following morning. 

Starting positions for floats will 
be staked out at various intervals 
beginning in front of Mu-nson 
Hall. 

Each float must take a position

Meeting Of African 
Christian Outpost 

The jungle hospital of Albert 
Schweitzer in French Equatorial 
Africa was described as an out- 
post of Christianity by James Doty 
in a talk to the Wesley Founda- 
tion Sunday. 

Mr. Doty, ■ Methodist pastor 
from Lynn, told L0Q students of 
Schweitzer's work with the hack- 
ward natives. 

These natives, he stated, are ig- 
norant of habits of hygiene and 
health and still worship idols. 
Overcoming superstition and illit-

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1955 



Weary of standing in line at the Dining 
Commons? You're not alone. (Dat's da 
trouble.) Back in the thirties too, there 
were lines at Draper (university boarding 
hall before the advent of the Commons.) — 
but the students then willingly cooled their 
heels. According to Walter Johnson, man- 
ager of the dining halls, they would wait 
every meal hour in hope of being called to 
waiter. 

But lines of work seekers disappeared 
with the fortunate brightening of the world's 
economic picture. Nevertheless, UMass re- 
mained twenty years behind the rest of the 
nation, as usual, and adopted bread lines. 

However, UMass bread lines differ from 
those of the depression years. Scantily- 
dressed, wealthy scholars famish in today's 
files; whereas well-ventilated, impoverished 
students starved in yesterday's. 

So as their parents before them, today's 
students wait through rain and hail, snow 
and sleet, sun and storm. Isn't progress and 
properity great? 

Other colleges are not confronted with 
this line problem. Neither do they reim- 
burse boarders for fifteen consecutive meals 
missed, as ours does. Hence the tie-up at the 
register when thoughtless students don't 
have their tickets ready for recording. 

Neither do these other institutions pre- 
sent their boarders with the dilemna of 
choosing between three courses, as ours does. 
For some blankity-blanks, to arrive ait a de- 
cision takes at least five minutes. 

Neither are these other educational cen- 
ters confronted with a student labor short- 
age, as ours is. In a conversation with Mr. 
Johnson last week, we learned that there is 
very little interest among the students in 
working in the dining halls. Supervisors and 
other permanent help are attempting to do 
two or three tasks at once. Their success 
can be measured by the length of the lines. 
However, the student can do something 
about this situation. (1) He can cooperate 
with the Commons personnel tm having his 
ticket ready, and in moving along as quickly 
as possible. Please don't be a blankity-blank, 
and we'll not be one when we get in front of 
you. (2) He can become a member of the 
collegiate labor force. 

If you should decide on the latter solution, 
report to the Placement Office. If you are 
female, see Mrs. Cornish; if you are male, 
Mr. Morrissey. 

Work at the dining halls is steady, and 
pay hikes are rapid if you are a willing work- 
er. And did you know the big spoon is on the 
other side of the counter? 



NEW FACES 



Senate elections are over again for an- 
other year. We noted that there was a good 
turnout, that campaigning was spirited and 
that there were very few write-ins. It is in- 
dicative of the increased interest in student 
government that so many people ran for of- 
fice and that so many of them promised a 
spirited representation of their constituents. 

We note with pride the number of elec- 
tees who having promised an active represen- 
tation of their constituents have been elected. 
Let's hope that this year the senate may be 
as active as it has been in the past. Although 
we think that the past senate has done a 
good job, there is lots of room for more work. 

C.F.L. 



Don't Panic '56, '57 

To the juniors and seniors of this campus 
— in case you were confused by the article 
appearing in last Friday's Collegian entitled 
"2.0 Necessary ; D's Won't Do," you may be 
interested to learn that we were too. 

And since we are seniors and this would 
be a poor time for finding out that maybe 
we wouldn't graduate, we investigated. 

We found that this QP system does not 
apply to the members of the classes of 1956 
and 1957. We can remember several people 
tearing out large handfuls of hair because 
they had figured it all out and according to 
the QP, they would not be able to graduate. 
This caused a great ruckus until it was an- 
nounced that this did not apply to juniors 
and seniors, that is, those who would be jun- 
iors and seniors this year. 

It seems that all we have to do is pass 
our courses and we graduate.

A Memorial 
Alters Ways 
And Habits 

by Evelyn Cohen 

How many times have you stood 
before Memorial Hall, looked up 
to read the inscription on its sur- 
face and never fully realized the 
significance of its significance of 
words?— "We will keep faith with 
you who lie asleep." 

It was the alumni of the univer- 
sity who raised the money for, and 
had built, a Memorial Hall honor- 
ing the 1304 of our boys who "ven- 
tured far to preserve the liberties 
of mankind" in World War I and 
in memory of 51 of these boys who 
gave their lives. 

Have you ever seen the Memo- 
rial Room on the north end of the 
building? Probably not, because 
unconsciously the students abused 
it; therefore it has been closed to 
general use since 1945. On Alumni 
and Homecoming Days it is re- 
opened and appropriately decorat- 
ed with flowers. Various religious 
services are held in it during the 
school year.

Political Potpurri: 

Why Friday? 

by Micki Marcucci 

Friday night's senate elections in general were 
a success, that is, all the seats were filled and no 
one is protesting, asking for further recounts or 
charging illegal foul play. 

But to those who were directly concerned — the 
officials who ran the election and some of the can- 
didates — it seems there is room for much improve- 
ment. 

First and foremost, "Why Friday night?" is the 
question raised especially by the candidates. By 
Friday at 5 p.m. one third of the inhabitants of 
most dormitories had left campus for the weekend. 
And more than half of the remaining students went 
out for the evening and •■• b i they came in ... ? 

It is essential that a large rcentage of the 
population of each dorm, fraternity, sorority, and 
commuter group take advantage of their voting 
right. Otherwise, the election winner is not the 
"people's choice." 

Perhaps, considering the full university schedule 
at this season, the Friday date was unavoidable, but 
the confusing and almost unethical absence of spe- 
cific voting rules on the ballots and on the direction 
sheets given to election officials was not. 

No policy on bullet ballots, erasures, or type 
of vote indication was set down. In one dorm at 
least this presented a serious problem. A recount 
to overcome a tie was necessary in Hamlin and at 
2 a.m. the election officials had to decide themselves 
exactly what the policies would be. These officials 
were senators who were not candidates. The dorm 
house council had declined to run the election which 
was very fortunate, for if the inexperienced coun- 
sellors had undertaken the recount it probably would 
have been quite illegal. Only a senator could have 
known the necessity for witnesses, etc. 

Perhaps the possibility of recruiting senate mem- 
bers to run dorm elections should be investigated. 



Coming Friday 

This Friday's editorial page will he devoted 
to the international set — news, views and inter- 
views. We would like to make this an annual 
affair. However, it depends on the campus re- 
action. Therefore we would like to know what 
the reaction of the student body will be to this. 
Also if you have any comments on anything, 
don't hesitate to let us know, preferably by letter 
so that we will be able to share your comments 
with the rest of the campus. 



Noise 

Throughout Mem Hall you can 
always hear a constant buzzing of 
voices, laughter, and music. You 
can attribute this gay atmosphere 
to a number of things. 

Perhaps the commuters, whose 
gathering place Mem Hall is, are 
conversing, or maybe the Colleg- 
ian, Index or Quarterly editors 
are working on their next publi- 
cations in their respective offices. 
The music department might be 
holding a rehearsal in one of their 
allotted rooms. Probably the Adel- 
phia and Mortarboard offices are 
occupied or the phys. ed. depart- 
ment is using the bowling alleys. 

And the Alums 

But we can't forget the alumni 
who also operate under the roof 
of this building. Where would all 
these organizations meet if it 
weren't for Mem Hall? 

In 1947-48 the alumni worked 
vigorously on a fund drive and 
raised $90,000 out of their goal of 
$300,000 so as to extend the pres- 
ent Memorial as a student com- 
munity center and as "a new Me- 
morial linking World War I and II 
and dedicated to the Sons of Old 
Massachusetts who gave their 
lives in both". But the influx of 
veterans and the change of our 
name to a university caused such 
a great increase in enrollment 
that the alumni realized that an 
addition to Mem Hall could never 
hope to serve the campus ade- 
quately. In 1953 ideas to build a 
new student union were introduced 
and adopted. 

Comes SU 

The student union is to be self- 
liquidating. No decision has been 
reached by the alumni on the dis- 
position of the amount of money 
raised through their fund drive but 
they hope to come to a decision 
soon. 

When the doors of the student 
union open, Mem Hall will be con- 
verted to an Alumni House. The 
10,000 alumni we now have and 
the approximately 750 additions a 
year will have a home to return to 
on campus. It will be the center of 
alumni activity and other campus 
functions by invitation, such as 
tons and lectures. Thus Mem Hall 
will ho no longer for general use 
but a much needed building to be 
used for the benefit of the people 
who have helped huild our univer- 
sity to vhat it is today and who 
intend to further help us expand 
it to wh.it it will be tomorrow. 



VIEWS 
—AND— 
REVIEWS 



Saw a movie over the weekend — 
The Left Hand of God. This, in 
our opinion, was one of the poorer 
productions of the year. 

Not only was the acting second- 
rate, but also the plot was weak. 
We suspect it was due to the ex- 
traction of these scenarios from 
the complete book. We have been 
unable to check on this but we 
have had reports that this was the 
case. 

One good thing was the photog- 
raphy—just like in Soldier of 
Fortune, that pictorial portrayal 
of Hong Kong. 

Actually the setting was not 
shot in China. As far as we could 
see this was a revamping of old 
western landscape. 



Another item in the news lately 
has been the new liberal arts 
building. Did you know that all the 
cement is being poured on the 
ground and then will be boosted 
up to the proper level? For those 
of you who missed the parallel 
action on the new Hopkins Acad- 
emy in Hadley, this is your chance. 

There have been discussions 
concerning the feasibility of dis- 
missing classes for the week so 
that everyone will be able to 
watch this epoch-making event. 
Frankly we are a little concerned 
about this idea since what with 
all the traffic and pedestrians 
there is now, what might happen 
if everyone were allowed to be 
there. Therefore we will commit 
ourselves as being unalterably op- 
posed to this mad scheme, hatched 
up we'll confess at a late session 
in the Rathskellar. 

One doubting Thomas seems to 
think the floor, once jacked into 
position, may fall. Let's hope the 
second floor bites the dust, if it 
must, before the building is de- 
clared ready for occupancy. Think 
of being in a psych class some 
afternoon and suddenly being 
plunged kito the middle of a fresh- 
man French discussion. 

• • * 

One money giving parent has 
come up with this uefinition of mo- 
dern blank verse as it appears in 
the Quarterly: 

Limpid skies, mellifluous winds, 
and the green corn grew all 
around. 

• • • 

Tales of forming a committee 
on the investigation of the remov- 
al of green scum on College Pond 
are making the rounds. This may 
be a mad blow at the pourers of 
chemicals into College Pond or it 
may be an attack on the scum. 
We do not know how much work 
has been done on the formation of 
this committee but we hope that 
something definitive will be done 
about the dam scum.

The best book we've seen in 
some time is American In Italy by 
Howard Kubly. 

This is the record of his ex- 
periences in Italy as the holder of 
a fellowship. He tells of more 
practical things than just the or- 
dinary travelogues we see so fre- 
quently. 

Mr. Kubly is concerned with 
what we call "the masses", much 
to the distress of our soc profs. 
He seems to have become well- 
acquainted with the everyday 
!HH>ple who are the hacklxme of 
any country. These people hold a 
special attraction in their atti- 
tudes toward life— it will l*> pretty 
much the same for tliem no matter 
what happens politically. We 
would m-onmiend that book to 
anyone interested in people, any- 
one interested in Italy and anyone 
else who knows how to read.

committees. Activities and business 
will be spread out under better 
organization. 

Class, dorm and SC elections 
were planned and a tentative 
agenda was set up for Stockbridge 
Day. 



Aggies Trounce 
Thayer, 18- 

Stockbridge students were the 
only ones who had something to 
cneer about Saturday, October 1, 
when their beloved Aggies 
trounced Thayer Academy, 18-0. 

The team, resting this Saturday, 
will play next week at Vermont 
Academy. 

The victorious line-up was as 
follows: 

C — Allseio; RG — Rix; T — 
Freed; RE — Tierney; LT — Dugas; 
LE — Callan, Johnson; QB — Sears; 
FB — Loin; RHB — Flornine, 
Perry; LHB — Rodenhizer; LG — 
Garrie. 



Bar-B~Q To Be 
Saturday, Oct. 22 

The first meeting of the An Hus 
Club was held Oct. 6, in Stock- 
bridge Hall. The meeting was 
called to order by Alan Turner 
Since the vice president and the 
treasurer did not return to school 
chis year, new elections were held. 



James Anderson was elected vice 
president and Diane Lence, treas- 
urer. The new officers took the 
oath of office full of determination 
to make the club the best on cam- 
pus. 

On the agenda was the selection 
of an emblem and insignia for the 
club; it was decided that the mat- 
ter would be left open to entries 
or suggestions for these. 

It was also decided that the An 
Hus Club would sponsor a beef 
barbeque dinner, to be held on 
Farm Day, Oct. 22 at the UM 
farm. Committees are yet to be 
appointed for the event. 

There was a discussion about the 
possibility of merging the An Hus 
Club and the Dairy Club, since the 
departments of Animal Husbandry 
and Dairy Industry have been 
joined together and are now called 
the department of dairy and ani- 
mal science. This proposed merger 
was unanimously defeated. 

Dr. Baker, club adviser, spoke 
on membership and functions of 
the club. 

Membership dues will be due at 
the next meeting. 

After the business meeting, re- 
freshments were served.

A FLIGHT OF IMAGINATION prompted the Droodle

better than any other cigarettes— and for down-to-

tobacco. Then, that light, mild tobacco is toasted to 
taste even better . . . cleaner, fresher, smoother. So,

Greek News Of The Week 



Competitions in Friday's float 
parade will be particularly keen 
this year as each house will be 
vying for points in the overall 
fraternity rating. IFC has taken 
into consideration a possible repo- 
tition of last year's snowless Win- 
ter Carnival and has decided to 
award points to fraternity floats 
in case sn<n\ .sculptures can't be 
made. Judging will be done on a 
100 point basis. Fifty possible 
points will be awarded for origin- 
ality, 25 for participation, and 25 
for excellence of execution and 
composition. 

Frat Prexies in IFC 

A reorganization of IFC admin- 
istration will be accomplished this 
year by placing the presidents of 
all fraternities on the IFC Council 
and having them serve as the IFC 
Judiciary. 

Plans are now in progress by a 
cooperative committee of members 
from both IFC and Panhellenic 
Councils for the blood drive con- 
ducted every fall. Detailed plans 
for the drive, to be conducted next 
week ,will be publicized soon. 
Pan-Hel Sells Flowers 

Pan-Hel plans for Homecoming 
include a big flower push. The girls 



are selling the traditional autumn 
corsages of chrysanthemums in 
bronze, yellow and white which dot 
football stadiums across the coun- 
try to complement fall plaids 
and tweeds at the "big game." 

The corsages can be ordered any- 
time this week at sororities and 
fraternities or bought at Alumni 
Registration or before the game 
on Saturday. 

The Pan-Hel tea for freshmen 
has been rescheduled for Oct. 30. 
Originally planned for Nov. 13, it 
has been changed because of the 
holiday weekend.

New Floors To Be 
Laid & Jacked Up 

The new "ice-cream sandwich" 
technique of laying floors will 
speed up construction of the new 
classroom building. And it will be 
cheaper too. 

The process, used successfully 
throughout the southwest, involves 
the laying of all the floors one on 
top of the other, and then jacking 
them up and welding them in 
place. 

A thick coat of wax between the 
floors will prevent sticking during 
the process. When the technique is 
completed, brick walls will be built 
around the floors. 

The building, if used to capacity, 
will seat i860 students. In addi- 
tion, there will be 95 faculty of- 
fices. Classes will be held on three 




floors in each of the two wings. 
The offices will be in the front on 
all four floors. 



Boeing engineers are kept free for creative assignments 



Thanks to draftsmen and engineering 
aides, Boeing engineers are free to handle 
stimulating projects like this: determin- 
ing antenna properties in an electrolytic 
tank. Results taken with the three- 
dimensional plotter will influence the 
configuration of "years-ahead" Boeing 
airplanes and guided missiles now in the 
design stage. 

At Boeing, engineers hue the same 
relationship to draftsmen and engineer- 
ing aides that doctors have to technicians 
and laboratory assistants. 'Hie abilities 
of a Boeing engineer are fully utilized: 
in investigating heat, compressibility and 
oilier problems of suix-rsonic flight; in 
ytt, ram-jet, rocket and nuclear power; 
in electronic control of missiles, and much 



more— calling for a variety of skills in all 
the engineering fields. 

This electrolytic tank is one example 
of the superb equipment at Boeing en- 
gineers' disposal. Other facilities include 
the world's most versatile privately owned 
wind tunnel, a new tunnel under con- 
struction, capable of velocities up to 
Mach 4, the latest electronic computers, 
and splendidly equipped laboratory and 
test equipment in the new multi-million 
dollar Flight Test Center

this soundly expanding company now 



employs more than twice as many engi- 
neers as at the peak of World War 11. 

Of technical graduates at Boeing, 30% 
are mechanical engineers, 24% electrical, 
19% aeronautical and 9% civil engineers. 
The remainder are chemical, metallurgy

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11. 1955 



Time, Turf Foil UMass Rally; UConn Wins, 18-13 



Desperation Drive 
Six Yards Too Short 

The UConn scoreboard cloc' 
which went haywire when UMass 
scored its first touchdown in the 
second period, recovered in time 
to tick off the Redmen's fate in 
the final minute as the Huskies 
withstood a late rally to win, 
18-13, Saturday. 

An estimated 6000 fans sat 
through three and one half periods 
of dull football, watching Connec- 
ticut take a 18-7 lead and await- 
ing the outburst of the vaunted 
UM offense. They were not dis- 
appointed. 

An electrifying 58-yard run by 
Charlie Mellen put the UMen with- 
in five points with five minutes 
left, and they assumed possession 
of the ball again with 1:10 remain- 
ing. Dickie Wright snatched a Tom 
Whalen aerial and was heading for 
the safety of the end zone when 
he slipped on the hacked-up Stad- 
ium turf 20 yards away from pay- 
dirt. 

Clock Takes Charge 

Then the clock took over. It 
■topped at 00:14 when a Whalen 
pasfl to Bob DeValle fell un- 
touched. Tt jumped to 00:00 when 
Whalen hit Wright with a bullet 
on the six and the Redmen called 
timeout. Tt stopped for good at 
00:00 when another pass to De- 
Valle was blocked by seven or 
eight arms with Blue and White 
jerseys. That was that. 

This loss in their first Yankee 
Conference start made the UMass 
record 1-2. UConn's mark is just 
the opposite, outside the confer- 
ence (2-1) and inside (1-0). The 
Redmen played good football in re- 
bounding from the Harvard deba- 
cle, while the Huskies didn't show 
the form they used to upset BU, 
10-7. 

Injuries Cripple Redmen 

A third period offensive slump, 
caused by the inability of Coach 
Charlie O'Rourkc to substitute, 
probably cost the UMies a victory. 
Injuries to ends Gappy Kiuu and 
Dave Ingram, guard Lou Varri- 
chione, and halfback Hal Bowers 
made substitution at these critical 
positions almost impossible. 

The first quarter of the ball 
game found the teams feeling each 
other out, and the sogginess of the 
turf did not speed things up either. 
Neither team threatened in the 
opening canto, but the ultimate 
stars of the game made their pres- 
ence known this early. 

A short UConn march in this 
chapter was led by halfback Lenny 
King, a halfback who can really 
move. The Huskies perfected a 
play which had King carrying be- 
tween the defensive left tackle and 
end with four blockers paving the 
way. The play netted five yards 
every time, and helped King to 
build up his final total of 149 
yards gained on the ground. 
Allen Shines At Center 

Buzz Allen, starting his first 
game at center, stood out like a 
green stop sign in this quarter, 
calling the defensive signals, and 
helping on almost every tackle. He 
played the entire game, except for 
the last play, and was the UMass

standout along with DeValle and 
John O'Keefe the sophomore ends 
who were replacing Kidd and In- 
gram. 

UConn began a drive just as the 
period ended, and this march re- 
sulted in the game's first score. 
Two long passes from southpaw 
quarterback Jim DiGiorno to King 
set up the score, and Captain Bon- 
nie Amendola finally carried into 
the end zone. Dick Berquist 
crashed through and blocked the 
point attempt. 

UMass took the ensuing kick-off 
and moved to the Huskie ten. An 



arching pass from Whalt n to 
O'Keefe ate up 88 yards in this 
drive. But the attack stalled on the 
UConn nine, and the Huskies took 
over. 

Dolan "On The Ball" 

On the third play, Jim Dolan 
fell on a loose ball, and UM had 
possession on the 19. Two passes 
failed, so Wright swung left, took 
a pitchout, and ran into the end 
zone to tie it. Mellen's kick gave 
UM a 7-6 edge. 

Five plays later, UConn was in 
front again. King gained 28 yards 
on two carries, and then sopho- 



more quarterback Lou Drivas 
heaved a long pass to halfback 
Gerry Dooling who got behind the 
scored untouched. Dick Berquist 
crashed through and blocked the 
defense. He grabbed the pass and 
point attempt. 

The Huskies added an insurance 
touchdown in the third period, and 
it turned out to be the crucial 
score. Stan Banazewski set this 
one up by collapsing on a loose 
ball when Whalen attempted to 
pitchout to Biff MacLean. 

UConn took over on the 24, and

Miss Football Unveiling Coming Friday 



A campus queen secret that has 
been kept since last spring will be 
revealed on these pages Friday 
when Miss Football of 1955 will be 
announced. 

The winner will reign, as queen 
of the entire Homecoming pro- 
gram and will have a seat of honor 
at all remaining games on the fall 
calendar. Miss Football will also 
be entered in the national campus 
beauty contest sponsored by 
SPORT magazine. 

T}ie four finalists include Elaine 
Monroe, Carol Bruinsma, Barbara 
Axt, and Fay Hannibal, all juniors. 
A fifth finalist, Marilyn Votano, 
left school early this semester. 

The success and publicity this 
event has received has made it 
the number one campus queen con- 
test. Television appearances and 
nation-wide news stories have 
made the Miss Football contest a 
"must" for years to come.

Husky Highlights 



"Who won?" 

That was the first comment of 
UConn coach Bob Ingalls after 
the finish of the exciting contest. 
"I'm going to check the papers in 
the morning to see who won," re- 
peated the relieved coach. 



The first question the newsmen 
asked of Ingalls at the postgame 
conference was, "Why did Dickie 
Wright fall on his way to a touch- 
down?" His quick answer was "I 
went to church this morning; that's 
why he fell." 



Coach Charlie O'Rourke stressed 
that "there was no letdown for 
the full 60 minutes." He praised 
the work of new starters Bob De- 
Valle, John O'Keefe, and Buzz Al- 
len, the converted end who played 
the entire game at center. 



"We were better today than last 
Saturday, because you always use 
that something extra in Conference 
garnet," commented the UM coach. 
He added that UConn looked big- 
ger and stronger than last year. 



About 700 UMass fans were in 
attendance, including the band and 
drill team which put on a fine 
half-time show. The rain started 
late in the first quarter and sort 
of squirted out of the sky all day. 



It was "C" Day at the stadium 
as the Huskies were honoring all 
former athletes. Chrysanthemums 
and balloons were the order of the 
day, and some 2000 blue balloons 
went skyward when the home 
forces scored first, ^ ^ 9 

* • * 

Provost Shannon McCune head- 
ed his own personal one-man mo- 
torcade to Storrs. We passed him 
in Monson, where he was letting 
his dog, Cindy, get some air. 



The field was soggy all day, and 
most of Charlie Mellen's pre-game 
extra point tries were landing in 
a huge puddle behind the bleachers. 



It was a bad day for ends. 
Cappy Kidd and Dave Ingram sat 
out the game with injuries, and 
Harvey Wenz, a UConn flank mam, 
was in the infirmary all week. 



Probably the strangest part of 
the game was the regularity with 
which UMass smothered the UConn 
extra point attempts. Dick Ber- 
quist blocked the first two before 
they were six feet in the air, and 
Tom Whalen blanketed the third 
one with his stomach. 



UConn beat BU, 10-7, on a field 
goal. When asked how UMass 
blocked the points and BU couldn't 
stop the field goal, Coach Ingalls 
merely said, "l have no idea. We'll 
have to check the movies of the 
game.

UMass Booters Shutout WPI 
For First Triumph of Season 



by John Enos 

Backing up a sterling defense 
with a trio of goals, the UMass 
soccer team splashed to its initial 
win of the season as they shut out 
the W.P.I, booters on a soggy Sat- 
urday afternoon down in Worces- 
ter. Coach Larry Briggs hopes 
this new scoring punch will be 
strong enough to slug out a win 
over Amherst in the "big game" 
to be played at Alumni Field to- 
morrow at 3:15. 

The intermittent rain did no 
damage to the heralded Redmen 
defense and seems to have had a 
beneficial effect on its offense. Lou 
MoCarry, a hockey player in an- 
other season, found that he could 
score on the unfz-ozen waters as 
well. Lou booted a pair into the 
the nets and took scoring honors 
for the day. Soph Billy Burke ac- 
counted for the first and winning 
goal and it was also the initial 
tally of his college career. 

As usual, the hustling defen- 
sive play of Captains Mel Allen 
and Bob Abrahamson, Teddy Lee, 
Bob Briso, Dick Golas, and Steve 
Mirsky gave goalie Charlie Niedz- 
wiecki first rate protection. Lee 
Sutcliff did the almost impossible 
in the final quarter; he spelled 
Niedzwiecki.

had trouble getting adjusted to 
wet grounds and the water logged 
ball. Billy Burke must have ac- % 
quired his webbed feet first as he 
manuevered in close to drive one 
into the nets at 3:05 of the sec- 
cond chapter. 

At 10:27 of the same period, 
Lou McCarry undeterred by rain, 
mud, and the Tech defenders ran 
the count up to 2 to 0. All the 
home team's threats were checked 
by the solid Redman defense. 

Refreshed by the halftime 
pause, Lou McCarry once again 



I>enetrated the Engineer's front 
and back walls and notched his 
second goal of the afternoon. This 
marker came at 10:10 of the third 
period and put the game complete- 
ly out of reach of the Worcester 
squad. Neither team could cage 
a point in the last canto because 
by this time the ball weighed as 
much as a shotput.

Squeaky Horn's growing list of 
personal triumphs added another 
name Saturday when he estab- 
lished a new course record to lead 
his UMass teammates to an easy 
18-45 win over Williams at Wil- 
liamstown. 

The old one-two combination of 
Horn and Lepkowski finished in 
that order for the first time this 
season as Co-captain W*il crossed 
the tape second. 

Williams captain Art Fox was 
third followed by three Redmen — 
Lee Chisholm, Pete Schwarz, and 
Carl Baker. It was the first good 
showing for Schwarz who is 
rounding into shape after a fine 
freshman year. 

Squeaky's winning time was 21 
minutes flat — a new record tor the 
four and a half mile course in 
the deep Berkshires. Squeaky 
never was in trouble as he won 
his third straight race of the year 
and his thirteenth in eighteen col- 
legiate starts. 

This afternoon at four p.m. the 
Redmen will meet their biggest 
test in Yankee Conference ranks. 
The highly-rated UConn cross 
country squad will race UMass 
in what shapes up to be the big 
conference dual meet of the sea- 
son. 

Last year, a powerful UConn 
frosh team walloped the UM year- 
lings, and this added strength this 
season has made UConn co-favor- 
ite with UMass for the Bean Pot 
in cross country.

Freshmen Bow, 39-0 

Coach Hank Woronicz' freshman 
football team traveled 45 miles to 
Storrs Friday and it wasn't worth 
it. The freshmen took a 39-0 past- 
ing in their opener, as UConn dis- 
played an offense that promises 
bigger and better things for fut- 
ure Husky varsities. 

Fourteen points in the second 
period sewed up the victory for 
the Li'l Huskies, who had no 
trouble in gaining on land and in 
the air for UConn. Next start for 
the frosh is Friday when they 
travel to Cheshire Academy.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1955 



Allen Wins Wellworth Award 



Bill "Buzz" Allen, UMass center 
and defensive signal-caller, is the 
third Wellworth Award winner. 
His outstanding play in the 18-13 
football loss to UConn Saturday 
was voted the top performance of 
the week among I Mass varsity 
athletes. 

For his showing, Allen will re- 
ceive a gift bundle of goods from 
the Wellworth Pharmacy, North 
Pleasant Street, Amherst, and a 
handsome certificate from the 
Collegian staff. 

Allen, a native of Dorchester, 



was an all-Boston end at Dorches- 
ter High. Upon graduation, he at- 
tended Middlebury College, where 
he also stood out at end. In his 
sophomore year, he was voted the 
most valuable player in the Green 
Mountain Conference — a league 
which consists of the four Ver- 
mont colleges. 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke convert- 
ed Allen to center this fall, and 
Buzz responded 100%. He started 
for the first time against UConn 
and won the Wellworth Award 
hands down. 'Nuff said.

HURRAY FOR THE RED, WHITE AND GOLD! 

There's a new package on Philip Morris Cigarettes. It's red 
and white and gold and pretty as a picture. You'd never guess 
that behind anything so bright and cheerful is a saga packed 
with action and passion, with love and romance and not a 
few tears. 

It started quietly enough. The makers of gentle Philip Morris, 
as hale a bunch of fellows as you ever clapped your eyes upon, got 
to talking last summer during their annual outing on Attu, a 
secluded and unspoiled island, often called "The Capri of Alaska." 
Capri, on the other hand, is often called "The Attu of Italy." 




But I digress. I was saying that the makers of Philip Morris, 
jim-dandy fellows every man-jack of them, got to talking on their 
last outing. "Don't you think," said one maker to the other 
makers, "that our brown Philip Morris package, though in many 
ways terribly fetching, doesn't quite reflect the basic quality of 
today's Philip Morris— its happy gentleness, its jolly lightness?" 

"Why, yes," replied the other makers to the first maker, "we 
do think that our brown Philip Morris package, though in many 
ways terribly fetching, doesn't quite reflect the basic quality of 
today's Philip Morris— its happy gentleness, its jolly lightness." 

"Let us have the pack re-designed !" suggested the first maker, 
whose name is Laughing Ned. 

"Yes, let us!" cried the other makers, whose name is Fun- 
Loving Tom. "Let us! Let us! Let us!" 

The makers forthwith engaged the prominent firm of package 
re-designers, Sigafoos and Associates. It was with full con- 
fidence that the makers entrusted the task to Sigafoos and 
Associates, for Sterling Sigafoos, the senior member, is known 
the length and breadth of the world as "The Grand Old Man of 
Package Re-designing," and his partner, Fred Associates, 
though a younger man, is everywhere regarded as a comer. 

Sigafoos and Associates began their job by conducting inter- 
views from coast to coast to determine what kind of pack people 
wanted for Philip Morris. The partners could not do the inter- 
viewing themselves — Sigafoos because of his advanced years; 
Associates because he is subject to motion sickness — so they 
sent our two trusted employees: Mr. Walker Nylet (Yale '51) 
and Miss Felicia Sigafoos (Radcliffe '52), daughter of the 
senior pt-i tner. After canvassing the entire nation and tabulating 
more than 90 million interviews, Mr. Nylet sent the following 
communique to the home office: 

"Dear Dad and Associates, 

I call you Dad because Miss Sigafoos and I discovered 
during our long and exhaustive survey that never were two 
people so admirably suited. We have accordingly been 
married and have accepted a position with the United States 
Government keeping the lighthouse off Gay Head, Martha's 
Vineyard. 

I hope you are not too upset by this news. May I suggest 
you look at it this way: you haven't lost a daughter; you've 
gained a beacon. 

Sincerely, 

Walker Nylet" 

Well sir, old Sigafoos fumed for a while, but at last he calmed 
down and went to visit the newlywcds in their lighthouse, bring- 
ing thorn a suitcase full of twenties as a wedding gift. It was 
t hut he learned that people want Philip Morris in the red, white, 
and gold package which you are now, I trust, holding in your 
very own hand. © M »* N,,,,,,n " n

"OP Time is a' pickin' my pocket . . . stealing constantly," is a 
song which Arthur Godfrey made unpopular last spring but it certainly 
was true at Connecticut last Saturday. 99 44/100% of the audience 
will probably agree that were there time for another play, the Red- 
men would have had themselves a nifty scalp. But as they say, "Tem- 
pus fugit," and "Time marches on," and "Hickory Dickory Dock," so 
we can only add "Don't cry over spilt beans." 

However, the record books show that UMass lost one Saturday 
making their present mark 1-2, and what's more important 0-1 in the 
Yankee Conference. You can climb the highest mountain and scream 
at your highest pitch that the Harvard game was the big one, the one 
we "had to win" and the "game of the year." You'll be wrong. 

"The" Game Is This Week 

Saturday's loss to UConn was the most vital tussle thus far, but 
the one coming up (the only game as far as anyone's concerned, right 
now) is "the" important game. Maybe you aren't stirred up by Yankee 
Conference competition, maybe you don't watch the Sunday papers for 
the other scores within the league — but they're still the big ones. 
UMass beat Harvard last year and still had a mediocre football season. 
We finished fourth in the YanCon. Our victory over the Johnnies gave 
us a "big time" coat of paint for 365 days, but we think you'll agree 
that it's worn off now. -> 

Look at UConn. With only a fair to middlin' squad they took on 
four "big time" independents last year, plus four Conference oppon- 
ents. They lost them all, and would have been 0-9 except for an upset 
win over Northeastern. The important thing is winning in your own 
class, so Saturday's ball game will make or break the UMass season. 

The Yankee Conference, composed of the six New England 
state universities, determines its football championship on a point ratio 
basis. Two points are given for a win, and one for a tie. The total is 
divided by the number of games 
played, giving the final score. The 
Yankee Conference standings to 
date are:

By this system, 2.0 is perfect. 
The league this season is so 
evenly-matched that even the Red- 
men have a good shot at the title 
despite Saturday's loss. The 
UConn's are in the driver's seat 
now, but could be upset by Maine 
and New Hampshire in coming 
weeks should they get cocky.

feated them 41-14 and 52-6 in the 
past two seasons. The Homecom-

UMies to their zenith of gridiron

say taking a deep breath) should 
we beat URI and should UMaine

YanCon standing will look like 
next week:

The Redmen can jump from 2.0

with spirit riding high, and with 
10,000 students and Alumni in the

with Buzz Allen and the boys 
playing a good game in the line, 



and with Tom Whalen & Co.

Major Hoople picking Rhody . . . 
well, how can we help but win? 



IConn Game . . . 

(Continued from page 5) 
King carried thre • times to the six. 
Dooling scored off tackle to give 
UC an 11-point advantage. Whalen 
crashed through and blocked the 
point attempt. 

Football Incognito 

From this point until the UMass 

offense really got rolling, football 

was played in disguise by both 

teams. During the next twelve min- 



utes there were five penalties, five 
fumbles, and three interceptions. 
The ball changed hands more often 
than a reject in a glove factory. 

The final and fatal five minutes 
started with Wright intercepting 
on his own 14. Whalen hit DeValle 
for a 20 yard gain, and Wright 
crashed to the 42. Here Mellen 
swept left end, skirted two tack- 
lers, and cut right toward three 
more. 

The three defenders dived but 
Mellen wasn't there as he reversed 
his field again and went all the way 
to score. He missed the unimport- 
ant point.

'The Monroe' To Rule Over Giant Alumni Program 



Go-to-potitis Is 
UM Disease 

"Go-to-Potitis" was the sub- 
ject of President Mather's speech 
to the faculty yesterday morning. 

The cost of repairing the roofs 
on university buildings for one 
year requires $25,000 of the main- 
tenance budget, he said, and there 
are not even enough funds left to 
buy paint to keep the present in- 
adequate maintenance staff busy. 
As a result, he added, "things are 
going to pot". 

Maintenance is Same Since '46 

The president showed how the 
process of "evolutionary go-to-pot- 
itis" has taken place. 

Cubage, or the number of cubic 
feet of building space has increased 
50% since 1946 while maintenance 
has remained the same. Expansion 
in the future can present an even 
bigger problem if the maintenance 
situation is not corrected. 
Personnel Problem Most Important 

It is foolish to increase the staff 
if there is no proportional increase 
in clerks and maintenance person- 
nel, he said. 

The president stated that the 
personnel problem is "beyond a 
doubt the most important issue" 
in his campaign and he had hoped 
that the campaign could be carried 
out without affecting the budget. 
But, he added, "this is a neat trick 
if you can do it". 

Credits Ways and Means Comm. 

He pointed out that due credit 
should be given to the Ways and 
Means Committee for their appro- 
priations during the last two years. 
During this period, he said, more 
building appropriations have been 
granted than in all the pervious 
years of the university put to- 
gether.

All new business was tabled by 
a 26 to iu voic, the cfcuatl of the 
night, at Tuesday's senate meet 
ing. 

An informal coffee session which 
allowed the new senators to meet 
and talk to their fellow solons. 
followed the abbreviated business 
meeting. 

John Chaffee, Richard Keogh, 
and Joseph Larson, three of the 
ten who opposed the move to table 
discussion, had prepared motions 
which they wanted brought to the 
floor. Keogh argued that to table 
business would only postpone for 
a week work which might better 
be started at once. 

An amendment to the constitu- 
tion to the effect that all motions 
must be submitted ftp the sec iet a ry 
of the senate on tha Thursday 
preceding the meeting was passed 
unanimously. The secretary will 
prepare an agenda, which will be 
printed in the Friday Cotttgimt, 
This motion, submitted by Mona 
Harrington, could not be eoted Of) 
last week because of the lack of 
a quorum. 

No business 
that is not on 



wil] be taken up 
the agenda unless, 
by a majority vote of those pies 
ent, the senate decides to act on 
it. Mot xins may lie put in a 1»>\ in

Preaident Mather to order the re- 
moval of the chain blocking off 
the road behind Baker, and to re- 
locate it further down, thus Creat- 
ing more parking space. 

Senate president George Cole, 
discussing the motion with Chaf- 
fee after the meeting, decided 
that, considering the nature of 
the proposal, he would see Mather 
to hasten action. Chaffee said that 
Mather favored the move.

We've Got Their Goat 



by Jack Chevalier 
Amherst, Oct. 14 — We've got 
Rhode Island's goat a day early! 
In the most successful campus 
prank since the stealing of Metta- 
wampee in 1951, two Theta Chi 
brothers brought Ramcy IV, the 
Rhode Island mascot, to campus 
early this morning. The pair hi- 
jacked the ram from his sacred 
home on the Kingston campus, and 
toted him to an unknown hiding 
place in the Amherst area. 

He will remain there until the 
halftime intermission of tnmor 



The back seat of the car had been 
removed. 

The hijackers gained entrance 
to the animal barn by disguising 
themselves as friends of an agri- 
cultural worker at URL After 
"casing the joint" and noting Ram- 
cy"s special residence, the boys re- 
turned to the car. 

After a meal and a nap, the two 
parked their Buick in the woods 
near a path which led to the barn. 
The scene, as they described it,

COFFEE... 



They sat around the crackling fire and 
talked. "Wouldn't it be dandy," said a co-ed, 
"wouldn't it be dandy, if we could sit around 
this crackling fire and have someone to talk 
with? Someone who really knew something? 
An expert. Not a lecture. I'm sick of lec- 
tures. I want to talk about something, and 
I want it to be intelligent talk, too." 

So they sat around a crackling fireplace 
(at least, we like to think it crackled) and 
planned a plan, and last night it came true. 

Sipping coffee in Leach Lounge, they 
discussed Asian universities, and Indonesia, 
with Mr. Hilal of the World University Serv- 
ice. It was spontaneous and intelligent. Defi- 
nitely not a lecture. 

It was the informality that did it. Indeed, 
the evening was so enjoyable, that more in- 
formal conversational hours are being 
planned. The tenth anniversary of the UN 
will be coming up very soon. To commemo- 
rate this event, they are planning an infor- 
mal tea and talk Lime, with invited foreign 
students as guests. 

Shortly after that, the people with all 
these entertaining ideas have scheduled a 
program of drama reading. 

So, if you are also tired of lectures, and 
you like your coffee sugared with conversa- 
tion, we'll see you there, before a crackling 
fire. (At least, we like to think there will be 
a crackling fire.) M.L. 



Welcome Back! 

Homecoming will be with us again this 
weekend with two new features — a Home- 
coming queen and flowers for the individual 
queens of our hearts. 

Homecoming is one of the few times dur- 
ing the school year when we see strong emo- 
tions displayed on this campus. Of course we 
are dismissing lightly the emotions of foot- 
ball games and the like. What we -are refer- 
ring to are the emotions displayed by people 
who have not been on this campus since they 
graduated years ago. After years of ab- 
sence they will be back this year and' in years 
to come, simply because they have once again 
established a sort of rapport with the cam- 
pus and their (and our) growing university. 

This is the second Homecoming as such. 
Before we had Alumni Day — not as success- 
ful as last year's Homecoming. 

Let's hope that this Homecoming will be 
even more successful than last year's and 
that we are on the way to bigger and better 
Homecomings. A.D.S. 



Sex? Positively! 

Over 300 Protestant students completely filled 
line 3J at the Commons last night to hear the Rev. 
Thayer Greene's talk, "Sox? Positively!" at the 
first general meeting of the Christian Association 
this year. 

Mr. Greene, minister of the First Congregational 
Church in Amherst and chaplain of Amherst Col- 
lege, quickly put his audience at ease with his com- 
pletely frank and open discussion of the Christian 
view of MX, From the idea that students should 
look u|>on sex in a positive rather than a negative 
way, he went on to point out that love is essentially 
an "I-Tlmu" relationship and should not be made 
into an "I-Tt" or even an "It-It" relationship, as 
occurs when it is not real. 

From this h« wont on to discuss the aspects of 
love and sex in our way of lifo. 

There will be further details on Kov. Greene's 
talk in the Tuesday issue of the Collegian. 



AND MORE COFFEE 

by John B. Chaffee, Jr. 

It has often been said that the University is at 
least twenty years behind the times. In some res- 
pects this may be true, but we may now point with 
pride to one campus group which is beginning to 
catch up. Approximately one year ago the United 
States Congress carried on some sort of investiga- 
tion into the coffee situation in this country. And 
last Tuesday evening the Student Senate of this 
university voted to help reduce the coffee surplus 
in Brazil rather than discuss problems pertaining 
to our campus. 

Of course the situation was a bit more complex 
than that. A group of freshman senators felt they 
possessed neither the experience nor the ability to 
act on any new business. The obvious assumption 
must follow that a combination of hot coffee and 
a week's rest will produce a working majority for 
the next meeting. 

The few senators who strongly desired to put 
their motions before the group failed to aid their 
own causes by talking in seemingly antagonistic 
generalities. And the refusal of at least two of 
these individuals to join in the coffee-drinking after 
a majority vote had tabled new business until the 
next meeting served only to lower already low 
opinions. 

The major failing of this — as with previous sen- 
ates — seems to be a lack of unity. Surely last Tues- 
day night it was merely a conglomerate group of 
many individuals, rather than a cohesive unit ready 
and willing to tackle the problems of an expanding 
university. When the leading student organization 
on campus begins to show the way, then perhaps a 
few others will follow suit. When apathetic indiv- 
idualism disappears from Skinner on Tuesday eve- 
nings, it may begin to disappear all over school all 
the time. 

Until such a moment we remain nothing more 
than a group of "yankees tinkering in a bam." 



Chem Terms Meaningless? 
Not For Some 

by Evelyn Cohen 

To the majority of us the length and content of 
chemical terms hold inapplicable meaning but to 
Dr. Carpino, Dr. Stein, and Dr. Levitt from our 
university, and to the approximately 7,000 others, 
some foreigners, who attended the 128th National 
meeting of the American Chemical Society the worth 
of these terms hold much consequence. 

These three doctors have recently returned from 
Minneapolis where they presented significant papers 
at the National meeting of the American Chemical 
Society. The main purpose of these meetings, which 
are held twice a year, are to exchange ideas about 
research. This summer the meeting took place on 
the campus of the University of Minnesota. Hun- 
dreds of papers in some twenty odd fields of chem- 
istry were delivered. 

New Things at UM 

In the Oct. 3rd issue of Chemical and Engineer- 
ing News, a weekly newsmagazine of broad national 
circulation, we read, "extreme simplicity character- 
izes this new acid chloride synthesis process de- 
veloped at the University of Massachusetts by Louis 
A. Carpino." We have a right to be proud of Dr. 
Carpino, for his paper titled, "Hydrazidium Trihal- 
ides. A New Synthesis of Acid Chlorides," was 
among five which were selected from over 130 pap- 
ers presented to the organic division and cited as 
highlights of this year's national meeting. 

Dr. Carpino acquired his B.S. Degree at Iowa 
State College and his Masters and Ph.D. from the 
Univ. of Illinois. From Illinois he came here and 
has been employed on the university faculty staff 
for a year. He is continuing further experiments on 
his given paper and anticipates presenting further 
information on it at the spring A.C.S. Convention 
to be held at Dallas, Texas. He has hopes of per- 
haps bringing some of our graduate students along 
to Texas with him. 

Dr. Richard S. Stein delivered two papers to his 
audience in Minneapolis. They were introduced by 
the titles, "The Scattering of Light from Oriented 
Systems," and "Some Stress Birefringence Studies 
of Oriented Crosslinked Poleythylene." He is now 
busy studying the scattering of light by gases. Dr. 
Stein received his B.S. Degree from Brooklyn Poly 
Tech, his Masters and Ph.D. from Princeton, and 
his post doctorate from Cambridge. He came here 
from Cambridge and has been with us five years. 
To Study On Grant 

Dr. A mold Levitt gpokl on "Solvent Extraction 
of Zirconium With Tributyl Phosphate." Dr. Levitt 
received his B.S. dtfUt at. Rood College in Port- 
land, Orejron, and his doctorate it Oregon State, 
from where ho came to the University and has been 
with us for two years. His interests lie in the divi 
sions of physical and inorganic chemistry; he is 
occupied now in doing research in this field. Bt has 
just received a Cottrcll Grant to support his n 

■■• -h « tributyl phosphate as an analytical ex 
ing agent. 



The Mail Pouch 



Somebody Goofed 

To the Editor: 

I appreciate the attention my 
remarks on Germany to the IRC 
by the Collegian and wish to com- 
mend your reporter for her dili- 
gence. But the dictates of com- 
pression and some differences in 
emphasis on her part might lead 
others to conclusions which nei- 
ther she nor I intended. The thesis 
of my talk was that the unhappy 
conditions which had weakened 
German democracy before Hitler 
are no longer present, except for 
a certain political apathy and ig- 
norance which I noted especially 
among the younger Germans. The 
Collegian's account could lead to 
the conclusion that this condition 
is absolute. I pointed out in my 
analysis of t'hia problem that it 
was due in part to the practice 
of directing young Germans to 
vocational schools very early in 
life and to the old tradition of 
voting consistently along ideologi- 
cal lines. It was not my intent, 
however, to leave the impression 
that this is a problem of truly pro- 
found proportions, or that it it 
irremediable. 

Your reporter was accurate in 
quoting me as saying that there 
is no enthusiasm for the new army 
and that the Germans approved 
it only out of necessity. But I 
was emphatic in adding that the 
overwhelming majority recognized 
what a prime necessity it is for 
their state's continued existence 
in the free world. 

Thank you.

The Trouble Lies... 

To the Editor: 

In an explanation of the long 
lines at the dining halls, the Col- 
legian reported in the Oct. 7 is- 
sue tha* the fault lay with the 
students and not with the manage- 
ment. The Collegian was satisfied 
with Walter O. Johnson's reply 
that not enough people have 
shown an interest in working in 
the dining halls and that those 
who do get too tired to work or 
to care about whether meals get 
served on time. I am not satisfied 
with that reply. 

Throughout the three semesters 
I worked in the Dining Commons, 
I never saw student workers who 
were too tired to care. All the 
workers I have known have been 
conscientious about serving meals 
on time and they have been thor- 
ough in all other phases of their 
work. 

It was Mr. Johnson's own do- 
ing that eliminated about a third 
of his best workers this year. 
He decided that no one could work 
in the dining halls unless that pe- 
son had a meal ticket. That elim- 
inated the married workers (per- 
haps those who needed the jobs 



the most), all those who eat at 
fraternity and sorority houses and 
all seniors who do not wish to 
purchase meal tickets. It is also a 
management problem that there is 
not enough remuneration for the 
amount of work done as compared 
to other campus jobs. 

I suggest that in the future, 
should the Editors of the Colleg- 
ian desire any information per- 
tinent to the efficiency of the din- 
ing halls that they interview a few 
of the student workers and thus 
get a clearer picture of what goes 
on. 

Alfred R. Bartlett 



Blasts Monopoly 

To the editor: 

Because no campus organization 
except the Collegian can deal fully 
with university news, and because 
no other organization reaches 
enough students to be an effective 
editorial voice, the Collegian is a 
monopoly communication unit. 

As a monopoly the Collegian 
has certain responsibilities to min- 
ority views. The statement in the 
Friday, Oct. 7 editorial that "any 
opinion ... in this paper is sup- 
posed to reflect the opinion of the 
majority of the staff, and, we hope, 
the majority of the campus ..." 
is an evasion of such responsibili- 
ties. 

Since the newspaper is made up 
of many divergent views the edi- 
torial page should try to present 
opposing ideas. Minority ideas 
should be published, .because those 
ideas are the ones that make 
changes in our thinking. And our 
thinking is not yet so perfect that 
parts of it don't need changing. 

Further, by refusing to print 
minority views the talents of able 
writers with such opinions are 
frustrated. Since an important 
function of a college newspaper 
should be educational, trying to 
give people a chance to learn, all 
writers with ability should be per- 
mitted to present themselves hon- 
estly through the editorial col- 
umns of the paper. 

Besides, minority opinions al- 
ways have the value of creating 
discussion, and of forcing the stag- 
nant views of some groups into 
the light of critical inspection. 

Sam Kaplan 



(Editor's Note: The problem is 
not as much that of the majority 
or the minority but rather that 
of presenting a united front to 
the public. This certainly is the 
worst thing that could happen — 
showing up dissension among staff 
members in public. 

Tlve opinions expressed here are 
our peculiar opinion, based on the 
facts at our disposal. 

Anyone wlio disagrees with or 
from or agrees with us has the 
right to express himself through 
a letter to the editor.)

THE M ASS U HI SCTTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1955 



Crippie^Redmen, With Backs To Wall, 
Seek Revenge Against Rhody Tomorrow 



BigHomeeomingTilt 
Finds Six Men Hurt 

With revenge as a motive and 
adhesive tape as a weapon, the 
crippled UMass football team will 
try to shear the Rhody Rams to- 
morrow at Alumni Field where a 
Homecoming crowd of 8,000 is ex- 
pected to greet the opening kick- 
off at 2. 

The Redmen will be out to even 
the score with the Rhode Island 
club which inflicted 41-14 and 52-6 
defeats upon them in the last two 
seasons. * 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke's wor- 
ries going into this vital Yankee 
Conference tussle all concern the 
health of his ball players. Four 
regulars are not expected to play, 
with two others slated for limited 
duty. 

Kidd Sidelined 
End Russ Kidd, who sprained his 
ankle in the Cage last Friday, has 
not recovered as yet, and probably 
will not play. Cappy did no con- 
tact work during the week. 

Guards Lou Varrichione and 
Buzz Richardson are out, the form- 
er with a re-injured knee, and the 
latter with a pair of cracked ribs. 
Hal Bowers, the menacing half- 
back who scored three times 
against AIC in the opener, still 
has back troubles, and will prob- 
ably sit this one out, too. 
Dolan Injured 
Scheduled for light duty are 
Jimmy Dolan, with a shoulder 
bruise, and Dave Ingram, with a 
bad knee. 




FROSH TO CHALLENGE 
CHESHIRE CATS TODAY 



Today the UMass frosh foot- 
ballers will travel to Cheshire 
Academy in an attempt to even 
their record which stands at 1-0 



ART MILLER 



After eliminating these half doz- 
en invalids, Coach O'Rourke has 
come up with a starting lineup 
that looks like this: 

John O'Keefe and Bob DeValle, 
ends; Art Miller and John McGow- 
an, tackles; Ronny Matheson and 
the injured Doland, guards; and 
Buzz Allen center. Actually, the 
line is the same unit which opened 
up against UConn, except for Mill- 
er who won a starting berth from 
Fran Spriggs this week. 

The backfield will probably have 
Tommy Whalen at QB, with Don 
Johnson and Dickie Wright at 
halves, and Roger Barous at full. 

Rhody, a running team that uses 
the split-T, has two wins and two 
ties tr. date this season. Their 
main weapons are a pair of tricky 
ground-gainers, Bill Montanaro 
and Ed DeSimone. The latter tal- 
lied 30 points against the Redmen 
last fall. 



Booters Meet UConn 
After Amherst Loss 

Recovering from a 6-1 midweek 
loss to Amherst College, the 
UMass soccer club will journey to 
Storrs Saturday to take on the 
UConn booters at 3 p.m. 

It was no holiday for the Red- 
men Wednesday when the relent- 
less Amherst offense poured six 
goals into the nets. Three of the 
goals came in the decisive first 
period which was the story of the 
game. 

Sophomore Billy Burke added 
the gleam of sunshine to the 
UMass cause with a first period 
score. Burke made a smart play 
in scoring his second goal of the 
year, and used his head to wing 
the ball into the mesh. 



The Little Redmen soccer team 
was blanked by Mount Hermon, 
5-0, on an adjacent part of Alum- 
ni Field Wednesday. The frosh 
lack experience, but play aggres- 
sive ball for Coach Larry Briggs. 

Saturday's tilt at UConn will be 
important for the varsity booters 
who are trying to rally from their 
mediocre start and post a respect- 
able record for the season. 



after the 39-0 loss to the UConn 
yearlings last week. The team 
shows no signs of an acute inferi- 
ority complex after last week's 
disaster, in fact, the players feel 
very confident about the results 
of today's tussle. A week of hard 
scrimmages in the blistering heat 
should have the boys in top shape 
for the Cheshire eleven. 

Virtually the same team that 
lined up against UConn last week 
will take the field against Cheshire. 
Laurie Treadwell and Bob Foley 
will be at the ends, John Komin- 
sky and Dan Desmond at tackles, 
Phil Beradi and George Laughlin 
are the guards, and Dick Morreale 
is at center. The backfield of Jim 
Hennessey, QB, Larry Holt and 
Ben Gatchell, halfbacks, and Bill 
Goodwin, fullback, will remain in- 
tact. 

Under the eyes of Coach Hank 
Woronicz this team has made rapid 
progress. Constant scrimmages 
with the varsity have given the 
team unlimited opportunities for 
advancement. Although last week's 
score may not show it, this is prob- 
ably one of the most promising 
squads UMass has had in a long 
time.

Open Sunday 1 p.m. 



Bob "Squeaky" Horn, whose un- 
defeated skein was snapped by Lew 
Steiglitz of Connecticut, will be out 
to regain his winning stride in the 
varsity race. He will be seeking 
his fourteenth win in twenty var- 
sity starts. 

Steiglitz Alive in '55 

Steiglitz was the standout in the 
Tuesday match, as his new 1955 
style cut a minute off last year's 
time. He won in 23:09.1, a full 100 
yards ahead of Horn. The long- 
legged Steiglitz will meet Squeaky 
three more times this fall — in the 
Yankee Conference, Connecticut 
Valley, and New England meets. 

Co-captain Wil Lepkowski fin- 
ished third in the race, but Mich- 
aud and Frazier of UConn were 
right on his tail. Tim Flynn and 
Lee Chisholm of UM broke the 
tape next, but the fifth UMass 
scorer, Carl Baker, was eleventh 
and the final score was 27-29 for 
the Huskies. 

Frosh Impress in Victory 

The UMass frosh showed depth 
and speed as they racked the 
UConn yearlings, 20-35 in the first 
half of Tuesday's twin bill. Al- 
though Gerry Vichi of UC was 
first, five UMie runners were right 
behind him to clinch the important 
victory. 

Coach Bill Footrick has five good 
men on his squad, including Eric 
Dahl, who finished second Tuesday. 
Don Madera, Murray Watt, Pete 
Leonard, and Woody Thelin are 
the men who form the nucleus of 
this strong freshman array. 

The match with MIT tomorrow 
is expected to be close in both var- 
sity and frosh divisions. For the 
varsity, the running at Franklin 
Park will be a vital warmup for 
the New Englands which are held 
there.

VOL. LXVI NO. 9 PUBLISHE D TWICE WEEKLY 

INDONESIAN EDUCATOR 
IS VISITOR TO CAMPUS 

Mr. Wahban Hilal, acting dean 
of the only school of journalism in 
Indonesia, came to the university 
last week in conjunction with the 
World University Service. 

At an informal coffee hour at 
Knowlton, he compared the Ameri- 
can college girl to the Indonesian 
college girl. At Leach, he led a 
discussion on Indonesian and Asian 
universities. 

He also spoke to university 
classes and to the Campus Chest 
Committee, which gives a large 
part of its collections to the World 
University Service. Mr. Hilal is 
the chairman of the Djakarta 
branch of WUS. 

Mr. Hilal was born in Indon- 
esia and is now a lecturer at the 
National University and Krisna- 
dwipajana University and Chair- 
man of the National Committee for 
Geography. He is also a member 
of the Masjumi, a political party 
and a member of the Board of the 
Mohammadian School organiza- 
tion. 

He was formally an instructor 
at the University of Amsterdam, 
an Assistant in the Cultural De- 
partment of the Ministry of Over- 
seas Affairs of the Netherlands 
government, Town Planning Di- 
rector of the Ministry of Public 
Works of the Indonesian govern-

Drive Starts; 
Donors Needed 

Operation "Life-Line," the an- 
nual Blood Drive, is being con- 
conducted at Knowlton House today 
and tomorrow, Oct. 18 and 19, 
sponsored by the Panhellenic 
Council. 

The number of donors signed 
up for the drive has fallen short 
of the required amount. Miss 
Trow, the head of the Red Cross 
blood drive unit of Northampton, 
stated that the donor requirement 
was set high this year to meet 
the increased demand for blood 
caused by the recent disasters. 

Captain Hamlin of AFROTC 
announced that there are many 
vacancies in the donor list between 
the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. 
on both Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Students under 21 need a blood 
release form signed by their par- 
ents. These forms are available 
at Drill Hall. 

Captain Hamlin said yesterday, 
"Help is needed so that someone 
else may live. Let's go over the 
top."

Faculty Votes 
Long W'kend 

By unaminous vote of the fac- 
ulty, Nov. 12 has been declared 
the second previously unscheduled 
holiday of the semester. 

At last Thursday's faculty 
meeting Provost McCune explained 
that because of the Fri. Armistice 
Day holiday, the rumor has cir 
culated through the campus tha' 
there would be no classes on Sat- 
urday. A vote was called to which 
almost all present voted "Aye". 

Mr. McCune then set a new pol- 
icy that in the future the univer- 
sity calendar must be completed 
by spring of the previous year 
and no changes will be made un- 
less the proposal is brought to the 
scheduling committee and ap- 
proved.

Team Members Hospitalized 
After Soccer Bus Smash-Up 



Coach Lawrence Briggs will 
have his back X-rayed today to 
determine the extent of injuries 
suffered in an accident involving 
the soccer team bus last Friday 
evening. 

The accident occured when a 
chartered Peter Pan bus rammed 
into a washout on route 3? in 
Monson and came to rest against 
a bridge abutment. The bus was 
carrying the I'M soccer team to 
Amherst after it had beaten the 
University of Connecticut 3 to 1. 
1 3 team members and the bus driv- 
er were injured. The bus carried 
22 passengers. 

Hirtle Hurt 

Briggs, whose injuries include" 
gashed chin and chest abrasions 
complained Sunday of pains in the 
area of his lower spine. He is 
resting in the Wing Memorial Hos- 
pital in Palmer. 

Another passenger who was bad- 
ly injured, James Hirtle, team 
manager, is reported to be pro- 
gressing satisfactorily. He suffered 
a compound fracture of the right 



also at the Wing 




leg. Hirtle is 
Hospital. 

Team member Charles Niedz- 
wieki will have x-rays taken of 
his jaw to determine if it is brok- 
en. He was transferred from the 
care of the Wing hospital to the 
Cooley-Dickinson Hospital of 
Northampton on Sunday. In the 
accident he received a broken 
cheek bone and mouth lacerations 
and lost four teeth. 

Gets Mouth Cuts 

The fourth badley injured team 
passenger, team member Edward 
Lee, is expected to undergo dental 
surgery soon as the result of 
mouth lacerations he received in 
tho accident. Other injured team 
members are reported to be re- 
covering satisfactorily. 

At the site of the accident, 
warning signals had been dis- 
persed by an auto which had been 
able to stop short of the gully. 
A nearby resident, Charles T. 
Coolong, reported that he had been 
phoning the Street Department to 
tell them of the incident when the 
bus came along, and the driver, 
seeing no warnings, drove into the 
washout. 

The washout occurs at a point 
where the Aug. 19 floods had 
washed out the road at one end of 
a small tontrtte bridge, leaving 
the bridge standing but under 
mined.

Elaine Reigns In Rain

Rain dampened the campus dur- 
ing Homecoming weekend but not 
the spirit of the participants. 
Float Parade Was Postponed 

The float parade was postponed 
until Saturday morning. In spite 
of the downpour, most of the floats 
appeared in the parade as sched- 
uled. Plaques were received by the 
winners of the sorority, fraternity 
and dorm competitions. 

Kappa Alpha Theta was the win- 
ner in the sorority competition. 
Chi Omega and Phi Delta Nu took 
second and third place respectively. 

First prize in the fraternity di- 
vision went to AEPi. Second prize 
was captured by Delta Sig. Phi 
Mu Delta and Alpha Gamma Rho 
tied for third place. 

Baker dormitory came in first 
in that division, followed by But- 
terfield and Crabtree in that order. 
Baker's winning float featured a 
large ram with the slogan "Ram 
the Rams." 
Bee-lime to Victory Theta Theme 

"Bee-line to Victory" was the 
theme of the Theta float which 
featured a queen bee, represented 
by Vera Jean Lang, followed by 
a line of worker bees decked out 
in black costumes with golden 
wings. 

A huge whale dominated AEPi's 

float which exemplified the theme 

"Whale 'em." The Leviathan was 

later seen inhabiting college pond.

Approximately 150 alumni reg-

CHEERS, CHEERS 

This campus has spirit; and don't let any- 
one tell you differently. All we need is a good 
opportunity to show it. 

And we sure got that opportunity last 
Saturday morning when, amid drizzling cold 
rain and sweeping wind, the annual Home- 
coming Weekend float parade looked as if it 
would get completely washed out. 

The beautiful and colorful floats were 
ready despite the continuous rain of the pre- 
vious day. Many were decorated with colored 
crepe paper and other non-waterproof ma- 
terials such as cardboard, tissue paper, and 
paper mache. Some floats carried girls 
dressed in lovely gowns, and most of the 
others were comprised of variously costumed 
participants. 

Nevertheless, when the order to begin 
the parade was sounded, each group gathered 
together whatever remained of their float 
and with slightly dampened but not des- 
troyed spirit, started along the parade route 
to show the people of Amherst that we don't 
give up easily. 

Blue legs and red hands and faces were 
a common sight after the rain started soak- 
ing into the crepe paper sashes and bows 
which were part of the costumes worn in 
the parade. Before the floats reached the 
center of Amherst everyone looked as if 
they were all part of the losing side in the 
rope pull, which was held later in the day. 
Even the wind had taken its toll by break- 
ing down and blowing away much of the 
decorations and float strructures. 

But the girls kept singing, and the Sig 
Ep band (?) kept playing, and all the floats, 
bedraggled as they were, continued on to the 
finish. Three cheerleaders even had the cour- 
age to ride in an open convertible and shout 
and sing school cheers all the way. 

Our rain hats arc off to all who partici- 
pated in and helped to make this float parade 
so successful, despite the overwhelming odds 
against them. Let*s carry this spirit over 
into our other campus activities throughout 
the remainder of the year. J. U.K. 



Political Potpourri: 

Officers to be Chosen 

by Micki Marcucci 

Election of officers, always a time consuming 
process, and 17 motions with a possibility of a few 
more, to be discussed and voted upon threaten to 
prolong tonight's senate meeting into one of the 
longest in its history with the exception of spring 
budget meetings. 

The most important event of the year with few 
exceptions is the senate office elections, yet it cer- 
tainly was not stressed at last week's brief meeting. 
Freshman senators perhaps have little conception 
of the real significance of the executive team of the 
student government. 

According to the by-laws, the executive commit- 
tee, consisting of the president, vice-president, 
treasurer, and chairmen of the standing committees, 
has power to impeach senators and, more important, 
to discuss the work of and recommend additional 
functions to committees as well as to act as a check 
on each committee's activities. 

The committees themselves, both standing and 
ad hoc, are chosen by the senate president with the 
approval of a majority of the senators present. Thus 
the president is the key figure in the makeup and 
structure of the senate, for it is rare that his ap- 
pointments are voted down since he consults many 
people before he determines committee membership 
and chairmen. Another of his powers is to assign 
bills to these committees and recommend what ac- 
tion is to be taken. 

The other members of the executive committee 
likewise are important figures. The vice-president's 
powers center mostly around committee activity and 
record keeping. A good team of executive officers 
and committee heads means the difference between 
a split unwieldly body that accomplishes nothing 
and a smoothly working legislative group that does 
the most work possible by merging its differences of 
opinion (of which there will probably be many this 
year) into the best point of meeting of the diver- 
gent views. 

The election of a president who maintains an 
open mind to arguments from all sides and has the 
least amount of set bias that is possible in a human 
being is vital to this year's student senate. 

Predictions could be made about who will have 
the difficult job of senate leadership when tonight's 
meeting is over and certainly the unexpected could 
happen but the question of will it, will remain un- 
answered until after 7 p.m. tonight. 

New business, including motions tabled from two 
previous meetings, will consist of 17 motions of 
which eight pertain to building and grounds indicat- 
ing that that committee will probably be busier than 
it's been in years. 

Two constitutional amendments are among the 
remainder of the motions. One concerns the senate 
representation on the athletic council which was the 
subject of a heated battle last spring even necessi- 
tating a visit by President Mather. Perhaps this 
problem will be renewed once more . . . 

The other amendment if passed will give the 
election committee the function of determining com- 
muter and dorm representation. The president now 
has this function. 



VIEWS 
— AND— 
REVIEWS 



What's the Matter? 

What's wrong with the Rhode Island 
ram? 

It seems that little ol* Rhode Island 
doesn't want him back. They say that it 
would be too much trouble to get him back. 

We find this hard to believe. Perhaps his 
horns don't match. Or is it that his coat of 
wool isn't up to this year's standards of what 
the well-dressed ram is wearing? 

At any rate this certainly has been a let- 
down for the enterprising lads from Theta 
Chi who went to all the trouble of getting 
him from down thar and bringing him up 
here. 

It seems to us that these boys deserve 
more recognition than they have received 
from Rhode Island. What to d<>. 

We could immortalize him in a statue — 
the ram, that is. Or we could have a plaque 
made to be affixed to the walls of the new 
Student Union commemorating the action 
of these boys which was .if tor all "above and 
beyond the call of duty." 

We would appreciate further remarks on 
this subject to be addressedd to the editors 
of this paper. We all recognize the need for 
swift and definite action.

Paramount must be commended 
for attempting to give movie-goers 
the best story ever written, Ulys- 
ses; but the film itself can not be 
commended. 

Kirk Douglas portray's a less 
crafty Ulysse3 than Homer's, 
while Italy's sex-bomb, Silvana 
Mangano, has the co-lead as Pene- 
lope. Miss Mangano's performance 
could be equaled by the statue of 
Venus. 

As usual, the producers found 
it necessary to omit some episodes 
and to painfully alter others. Con- 
sequently, "the spectacular epic of 
history's greatest adventure", as 
seen on the screen, is considerably 
less than enchanting. 

However, the lovely and tender- 
hearted Nausicaa i3 delightfully 
performed by Rossana Podesta. 
The scenes of her tender love for 
the aging Ulysses and of her sug- 
aring-up "Daddy", King Alcinoos, 
are particularly enjoyable.

with it is not our idea of farming 
or what the farmers need. 

Of course the ground needs to 
soak up water for the winter, but 
do we? And think of all the 
workers who can't be workers be- 
cause of the rain — the new build- 
ings whose progress is being de- 
layed because of this drippy stuff. 

And while we're on the subject 
of construction, we had a nice talk 
with one of the foremen on the 
lib arts building that's a 'buiding. 
Seems that once all the floors are 
poured on the ground floor, it all 
has to sit twenty-one days to age 



Grad Receives Grant 

Mr. Franz Brandl, a graduate student in 
food technology, is holder of a private schol- 
arship and a U.S. Government maintenance 
grant for study here at the university. 

Mr. Brandl, 23, is originally from Linz, 
Austria. He gains his interest in food tech- 
nology from his father who is head of a large 
bakery in Linz. He went to England after 
studying at the University of Vienna for a 
year and worked there for a time in several 
large English bakeries. 

Mr. Brandl is also interest in the Boy 
Scouts, having joined immediately after the 
war in Linz. Through scholarships won in 
connection with his work in this group he 
has travelled over a large part of Europe. 

He is also interested in sports — skiing 
and swimming and enjoys concerts and the 
theater. 

He is studying at the university because 
of his interest in solving questions concerned 
with the steadily increasing world popula- 
tion and the production of food. He also 
h opC l to take beck to Austria new research 
results which may help to improve the gen- 
eral standard of life and thus help Aust ria 
become a reliable member of the free world. 



or something like that. Our ques- 
tion is what happens to all thure 
able-bodied men in that time — do 
they just sit and age and get paid 
or do they just sit or do they just 
get paid or what does happen to 
them? 

We frankly admit that we like 
construction workers and that we 
enjoy talking to them. This is a 
carry-over from the childhood side- 
walk superintendences we held on 
so many building lots. 

These men seem to have a cer- 
tain sureness about the most 
everyday tasks — even carrying 
their lunch buckets out at noon. 
And they're so blase about life — 
buildings will still be built, come 
what may, they feel. 



And in the long and lonesome 
night there is somewhere a voice 
— "somewhere a voice is calling 
me." This is the sort of songs we 
hear in the showers late at night 
after everyone is supposedly in 
bed. What sort of education in 
popular music will this ever give 
us? 

We sit and think — just sit and 
think and we can think of no rea- 
son for being and no reason for a 
voice somewhere calling . . . 

But somehow the down will 
come as it always has done in the 
past — even though it may not be- 
cause what proof have we that the 
sun really rises — and everything 
will be rosy and covered with dew 
and the lights will go on again all 
over the world. 

We picked up the Prince the 
other day and he seems to feel 
that hired help is just about the 
worst thing that can happen to 
anyone — - himself included. Of 
course this is really •not our pro- 
vince since we frequently have 
been hired in one form or another. 

However he maintains that 
hired help — why worry about it? 

But we agree with him when he 
says that hired help is about the 
worst thing in the world for any- 
one. 



While were's on the subject of 
hired help — what have YOU done 
about the situation? 

There ore jobs on campus and 
in town just your for the asking — 
Mrs. Cornish and Mr. Morrissey 
are very nice people; they are in- 
terested in getting you jobs. 



The Mail Pouch 



To the Editor: 

After reading the Collegian for 
last Friday, and again for tonight, 
Tuesday, I must say that I am 
disappointed in the self-proclaimed 
"voice of the students." I am sorry 
to see a newspaper with such po- 
tential influence as the Collegian 
allow its self -ex pressed ideals of 
fair reporting and independence 
from faculty and administrative 
pressures to be prostituted by such 
one-sided editorials as appeared 
in the above-mentioned issues. I 
am referring to those entitled "We 
Also Serve. . . " and "Help 
Wanted." 

Both of these editorials stressed 
the fact that there is, or was 
(the situation is somewhat better 
now), a critical shortage of help 
in the Dining Commons. This was, 
of course, very true. This is not 
what gripes me about those editor- 
ials (which, incidentally, sounded 
like offical publications from the 
office of the manager of the Din- 
ing Commons). They were fine, as 
far as they went. But they didn't 
go far enough. 

Walter O. Johnson, the manager 
<>f lxiarding halls, was quoted 
(indirectly) as saying that not 
enough students were interested in 
working in the Commons. This is 



a misstatement, or perhaps a mis- 
quote. Anyway, the problem is not 
getting the students interested, 
but keeping them interested after 
they begin working. The editorials 
deftly placed the blame for the 
poor service at the Commons in 
the hands of the student body, 
where the administration wants it. 
This is known as passing the buck. 
Let's have none of that. Place the 
blame where it belongs—in the 
hands of the management. 

There is one fundamental ques- 
tion; why is it difficult for the 
management of the Commons to 
find and hold student help? In 
private industry the failure to 
find labor would be traced to three 
factors—poor management, poor 
working conditions, and/or in ade- 
quate wages. These three factors 
are exemplified in the Dining 
Commons. 

After this, Collegian, try to 
show both sides of the picture.

Homecoming . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 
including George E. Taylor of Am- 
herst from the class of 1892. 

About 4,500 attended the UMass- 
Rhode Island game which took on 
the two-fold disappointment of rain 
and defeat. The scene was consid- 
erably brightened however, by the 
half-time appearance of Elaine 
Monroe, the Homecoming queen, 
accompanied by Provost McCune. 
The pair led the stolen Rhode Is- 
land ram across the field. The 
band and the drill team gave their 
usual fine performances. 

Sophs Win Rope Pull 

The freshman-sophomore rope 



pull approached the point of be- 
ing a free-for-all. The sophomores 
started the excitement when they 
tied their end of the rope to a 
tree and challenged a courageous 
freshman to carry the other end 
of the rope across the pond. When 
the freshmen attempted to tie their 
end to a pole, the sophomores ap- 
plied all of their strength to the 
hemp and dragged their opponents 
through the pond. 

Other features of the weekend 
included a student-alumni dance 
Friday night, alumni registration, 
and a faculty and student art dis- 
play at Mem Hall on Saturday 
morning, and a luncheon at the 
University Commons. 



Winter Carni Meeting 

An important Winter Carni- 
val meeting is scheduled for 
Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 7:30

tend. 



5P On Campus 

w> +y (Author of "Barefoot Boy with, 



with 

AfefihuJman 

Cheek," etc.) 



THE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SMOOCH 

Back in my courting days (the raccoon coat was all the rage, 
everybody was singing Good Morning, Mr. Zip, Zip, Zip and 
young Bonaparte had just left Corsica) back, I say, in my court- 
ing days, the standard way to melt a girl's heart was to write 
poetry to her. 

Young men today have abandoned this gambit, and I must 
say I don't understand why. Nothing is quite as effective as 
poetry for moving a difficult girl. What's more, poems are 
ridiculously easy to write. The range of subject matter is end- 
less. You can write a poem about a girl's hair, her eyes, her nose, 
her lips, her teeth, her walk, her talk, her clothes, her shoes - 
anything at all. Indeed, one of my most lambent love lyrics was 
called To Maud's Pencil Box. It went like this : 

In your dear little leatherette pencil box 
Are pencils of yellow and red, 
And if you don't tell me you love me soon, 
I'll hit you on top of the head. 

Honesty compels me to admit that this poem fell short of 
•uccess. Nothing daunted, I wrote another one. This time I 
pulled a switch; I threatened myself instead of Maud. 

Oh, Maud, pray stop this drivel 
And tell me you'll be mine, 
For my sweetbreads they do shrivel 
And wind around my spine. 

My heart doth cease its beating. 
My spleen uncoils and warps. 
My liver stops secreting. 
Soon I needs be a corpse. 

When this heart-rending ballad failed to move Maud, I could 
only conclude that she was cruel and heartless and that I was 
better off without her. Accordingly, I took back my Hi-Y pin, 
bid her adieu, and have not clapped eyes upon her since. Last I 
heard of her, she was in North Scituate, Rhode Island, working 
as a clam sorter. 




Akerfsnoteim *flw U mttf. teveented.if- BtwhsJtit- bectidrMcJ 



But I did not mourn Maud long, for after Maud came Doris- 
Doris of the laughing eyes, Doris of the shimmering hair, Doris 
of the golden tibiae! Within moments of meeting her, I whipped 
up a torrent of trochaic tetrameter: 

Oh, my sweet and dulcet Doris! 
You're gentle as a Philip Morris, 
With its mild and rich tobacco 
And its white and scarlet pack-o, 
Both in regular and king-size. 
Doris, tell me please your ring she. 

Well, of course, the poor girl couldn't resist a poem like that- 
what girl could ?-and she instantly became my slave. For the 
rest of the semester she carried my books, washed my car, and 
cored my apples. There's no telling where it all would ham 
ended if she hadn't been drafted. 

So, men, you can see the efficacy of poetry as an aid to wooing. 
Try it toon. All you need is a rhyming dictionary, a quill pen. 
and a second-hand muse. cm.. ««,„■„,.„. i ■.. -.'

Boeing engineers have a date with the future 



Guided missiles like this Boeing Bomarc 
IM-99 are increasingly important in 
America's defense planning. Many kinds 
of engineers— electrical, mechanical, civil 
and aeronautical — play vital roles in de- 
veloping it. The knowledge they are 
gaining will be priceless in producing the 
supersonic airplanes and guided missiles 
of the future. These men explore the 
frontiers of engineering knowledge in 
rocket and nuclear propulsion, in ex- 
tremes of vibration, temperature and 
pressure and in many other fields. 

Boeing engineers are members of avia- 
tion's top creative team. The aircraft 
they help develop will maintain the lead- 
ership and prestige established by the 



Boeing B-47, the present "backbone" of 
Strategic Air Command . . . the B-52, our 
giant new global bomber . . . the Bomarc 
IM-99 . . . and, most recently, the 707 
and KC-135, America's first jet transj-iort 
and tanker. 

At Boeing, engineers' professional 
achievements arc recognized by regular 
merit reviews and in other ways. The 
Boeing policy is to promote from within 
the organization. And Boeing is known 
as an "engineers' company. One out of 
every seven employees is an engineer! 
Ann my top m • tent, the proportion 

is even higher. 

Equipment at Boeing is superb; the 
latest electronic computers, a chamber 



that simulates altitudes up to 100,000 
feet, splendidly equipped laboratories, 
and the new multi -million-dollar Flight 
Test Center. The world's most versatile 
privately owned wind tunnel, at Boeing, 
is soon to lx 1 supplemented by a new tun- 
nel capable of velocities up to Math 4. 
Do you want a career with one of 
America's most solidly growing compa- 
nies? Do yoil want a chance 10 grow, and 
to share in the challenging future of 
flight? Then plan pour career as a mem* 
bet ol one ol I Wind's engineering teams 
in design, research or production.

Mural Football 
Begins This Week 

When the weatherman gives the 
starting signal, the 1955 univer- 
sity Intramural program, under 
the direction of Hank Woronicz, 
will begin. 

Last night the fraternity loop 
started its football schedule with 
four rainouts. The schedules, mim- 
eographed only recently, probably 
were not distributed anyway, so 
the rain was a blessing. 

Tonight four more games are 
on tap, but rain and wet grounds 
will probably cancel the opening 
once more. Four dormitory con- 
tests are expected to meet the 
same fate. 

This season there will be three 
leagues — the frat, dorm, and in- 
dependent leagues. The fraternity 
schedule has 66 games and 12 
teams, with the final games sched- 
uled for the week of November 7. 

Fraternities in League A include 
Lambda Chi, QTV, Alpha Gam, 
Delta Sig, Theta Chi, Phi Sig, 
AEPi, SAE, Phi Mu Delta, Sig Ep, 
TUP, and Kappa Sig. 

The "A" teams in the dorms 
have been put into the main dorm 
league, with the "B" teams in the 
independent league along with 
outside groups such as the Bay 
State Rifles, Commuters, etc. 

Each team is asked to post its 
own schedule in a conspicuous 
place, so that tram members will 
know about the games and show 
up. Rain, the biggest killer of in- 
tramurals cannot be helped, but 
forfeits can. Every team is asked 
to show up under penalty of elimi- 
nation from the league. 

The schedule in the frat division 
for tonight and tomorrow follows.

THE MASSACIII SETTS COLLEGIAN, TUESDAY, OCTOBER IS, 19", 



Burke Captures WW Award 



Billy Burke, the sensational 
sophomore who has tallied one half 
of the goals for the UMass soccer 
team this fall, is the winner of the 
fourth Wellworth Award of the 
season. 

Burke, who starred for Al Hoel- 
zel's freshman eleven last season, 
is a native of Belmont, where he 




was an inside man for two sea- 
sons. His sniping was as outstand- 
ing in high schools as it has been 
in his short career at UM. 

Billy scored his first goal 
against Worcester Tech, and then 
added a second against Amherst. 
This goal saved the Redmen the 
embarrassment of a shutout at the 
hands of their cross town oppon- 
ents. 

Burke's award winning per- 
formance came against UConn 
when he scored two of the three 
goals in victory. 



The entire soccer team conies 
in this week for a salute from 
the Wellworth Pharmacy, sponsors 
of the Wellworth Award. Their 
fighting spirit in Thursday's tri- 
umph — on the field of battle and 
on the highway — won general ad- 
miration at the Friendly Pharm- 
acy.

Booters Brilliant in 3-1 Win 
Over Favored UConn Team 

Burke Tallies Twice, Golas Once For Winners 



At least they were victorious in 
the hospital. 

The UMass soccer team, play- 
ing its best game of the season 
by far, upset the UConn booters 
3-1 Thursday, with forward Billy 
Burke tallying two goals to pace 
the victory. 

A quick tally by Dick Golas 
about 90 seconds after the opening 
whistle was a tipoff to the cham- 
pionship play which the Redmen 
exhibited throughout the triumphy. 

UMass dominated the play dur- 
ing the entire first half, so much 
so that the UM captain stated after 
the game that "we could have 
beaten anyone in New England" 
in that half. 

Burke Finds Mark 

With play centered around the 
UConn goal mouth, the second Red- 
men goal came out of a flurry of 
shots at the Huskies' netminder. 
Burke was the man who put his 
shoe to it, and the neat shot 
whistled into the nets cleanly. 



The tricky Burke executed the 
prettiest play of the season for 
his and the team's final tally of the 
game. Coming in unnoticed from 
his inside position, he took a pass 
and booted the ball past the fooled 
goaltender before he could get into 
position. The goal faked the goalie 
out completely, as Burke adeptly 
got behind the defense. 



Soccer Manager Needed 
Since socer manager Jim 
Mirth- will be hospitalized in 
Palmer until Decemberr, the 
team is in need of a new man- 
ager — immediately. Anyone in- 
terested in assuming the post 
for the remainder of the sea- 
son should contact Mel Allen 
or Bob Abrahamson at Kap- 
pa Sigma fraternity. 



For the remainder of the first 
half the Redmen stormed in UConn 
territory, but could not add to 
their 2-0 advantage. 



Charlie Stickels asks :

eligible? 




?*p jam +m- 



CHARLES A. STICKELS is currently working toward his RS.E. 
degrees in chemical and metallurgical engineering at the Univer- 
sity of Michigan. Mr. Stickels is past Editor-in-Chief of the Michi- 
gan Technic, vice-president of his student chapter of A.I.Ch.E., 
and a member of several honorary engineering fraternities. His 
editorial work has made him especially aware of contemporary 
employment questions facing engineering graduates. 




John Oliver answers : 



JOHN OLIVER, also a University of Michigan 
man, received his B.S. in Mech. Eng. in 1938. 
Right after graduation, he began working for 
Du Pont in the Engineering Section of its Belle, 
W. Va., plant. Following this came an assign- 
ment as Departmental Engineer in the Wilming- 
ton offices, and today John Oliver is again at 
Belle— this time as Assistant Plant Manager.

The answer to that is definitely "Yes!", Charlie. We've 
employed quite a number of college graduates with 
definite military commitments, sometimes knowing that 
they could work only a few weeks before reporting for 
active duty. 

The reason is that Du Pont is primarily interested 
in men on a "long range" basis. The fact that they're 
temporarily unavailable— for a good reason like mili- 
tary service— isn't any bar to being considered for 
employment. After working only one day, an employee 
is guaranteed full re-employment rights— that's the 
law. But if a man works for Du Pont at least a full 
year before joining the service, he gets a bonus of two 
months' salary. If he's entitled to a vacation but doesn't 
have time to take it before leaving, Du Pont gives him 
equivalent pay instead. 

Even if present employment is impossible, Charlie, 
we definitely recommend your talking with Du Pont's 
representatives— and those of other companies, too. 
The very least you'll gain will be valuable background 
and some contacts which may be of real benefit to you 
when you leave military service. 



The second half of the hall game 
was an even struggle all the way, 
with play sweeping up and down 
field. The UMass defense held 
against the rejuvenated UConn at- 
tack, and goalie Chuck Niedzwiecki 
made a number of nice saves in 
the nets. 

Rowland Averts Shutout 

With about seven minutes re- 
maining, Connecticut captain Dick 
Rowland took a nice pass to the 
right of the nets and booted the 
sphere past Niedzwiecki to spoil 
his shutout. 

The next game for the soccer 
team will be a week from Saturday 
when they travel to Bridgeport — 
by bus. This Saturday's Trinity 
game has been postponed to give 
the club time to get back into 
playing condition. The summary: 

UMASS 2 10 0—3 

UCONN 1—1 

Scoring: Burke 2, Golas, Rowland.

MIT Race Washed 
Out; UM Harriers 
Away Wednesday 

The heavy rains that drowned 
all of New England this weekend 
washed out the scheduled cross 
country match between UMass 
and MIT at Franklin Park Sat- 
urday. 

The UMass harriers, who aplit 
their first four matches, were look- 
ing to getting above the .500 mark 
and to get practice on the Frank- 
lin course at the same time. The 
New England championships are 
held on that layout in November. 

The next start for coach Bill 
Footrick's warriors comes this 
Wednesday afternoon at Spring- 
field where the Redmen take on 
the Gymnasts. On the same day, 
the frosh cross country team will 
entertain Mount Hermon here. 

The Springfield meet is the last 
dual match of the season for the 
harriers. 




DiSimone, Apkarian Each Score Twice 
To Pace Easy Rhode Island Victory 

by Jack Chevalier 

The slim UMass chances for a Yankee Conference title 
were buried on a soggy Alumni Field turf Saturday, when 
offensive-minded Rhode Island ran right past the Redmen, 
39-15, before 4500 wet fans. 

The Ram backfield, operating behind an aggressive line, 
got loose for long gains on several occasions, and scored 
three times in each half to clinch

the victory. UMass tallied in the 
second and fourth periods to keep 
the score respectable, although the 
Redmen were outplayed all the 
way. 

Shades of last year were ex- 
hibited early in the contest when 
Rhody captain Ed DiSimone took 
a pitchout and sped 42 yards to 
score. DiSimone tallied five times 
in 1954 when the Rams won, 52-6, 
over UMass. 

The pitchout play, which RI 
quarterbacks have down pat, was 
the thorn in the Redmen's side all 
afternoon. Three of the scores 
came on a variation of the play,

and another TD occurred when the 
Rams faked a pitchout and 6ent 
fullback Kazar Apkarian off tackle. 

In all, the Rams picked up 338 
yards on the ground, and only 
14 in the air. Every back Coach 
Hal Kopp inserted showed ability 
to move the pigskin. Jack Leach, 
for example, carried only four 
times, but gained 87 yards, and 
scored a touchdown. 

After the Rams took the quick 
6-0 lead, the UMass line held for 
the remainder of the period. 
Fumbles and penalties kept the 
offensive action to a minimum. 
Apkarian Takes Over 

Early in the second chapter, Di- 
Simone returned a UM punt to 
the Redmen's 43. Then Apkarian 
took over and carried four times 
in the next six plays until the ball 
was in the end zone. 

The third URI TD came quickly 
after that, as UMass was unable 
to gain a first down. After a punt, 
Rhody signal caller Jack Adams 
pitched out to Leach who went 
57 yards for the score. A penalty 
set the extra point attempt back 
to the 20 yard line, but sure-footed 
Jigger Jerue booted a long one 
anyway to make it 20-0. 

Just before the end of the first 
half, UMass hit the scoring col- 
umn to revive its hopes for victory. 
Ken MacRae, the Redmen center, 
recovered a Rhody fumble on the 
15, and in four plays UMass had 
a touchdown. 

Hal Comes Home 

Hal Bowers, a man who knows 
his way into the end zones at 
Alumni Field, scored from the one 
yard line. It was his fourth tally 
of the season at home. 

A third period touchdown which 
Rhode Island almost didn't get was 
the clincher. After recovering a 
UM fumble on the three, the Rhody 
eleven re-fumbled back to UMass 
on the two. After the Redmen 
kicked out, the winners moved in 
for their fourth TD. 

DiSimone returned the punt to 
the 19, and Apkarian scored on 
the next play. This was the fake 
pitch, where Adams handed off to 
Apkarian, then went through the 
motions of pitching to DiSimone. 
The Redmen were fooled and 
Rhody led, 26-6. 

Frosting was added to the cake 
in the last quarter when Rhode 
Island scored two more touch- 
downs. The pitchout play to Di- 
Simone worked for the first score 
on the first play of the period. 
This run covered 27 yards. 

A long run by Adams on an op- 
tion play put URI in scoring po- 
sit ion again a moment later, and 
a new man, Bill Warren, did the 
scoring. His run went off tackle 
and was possibly the prettiest one 
to watch all day. When he got to 
the hole, he just ran harder and 
literally whistled past the waiting 
UM defenders. 

The fighting Redmen, obviously 
inferior in the line and in the 
rushing department, proved their 
spirit with nine points in the last 
ten minutes. After getting a first 
down on the Rhody 36 thanks to a 
penalty, Tommy Whalen got clear 
on a quarterback sneak, wiggled

Sex?Positively 
p s Greene 



Sayi 



"How far can I go?" and "Can 
I or can't I?" 

These questions were discussed 
Thursday night in a talk to the 
Christian Association by the Rev. 
Thayer Greene entitled "Sex? 
Positively!" The Rev. Greene's 
theory is that one must know- 
something of Christian theology 
to understand sex. 

"We are psychosomatic," he said. 
He explained that in the Christian 
view of man, the body and soul 
are inseparable; therefore what- 
ever happens to the body makes a 
lasting effect on the soul. 

Explains Chastity 

Christianity says that "knowing" 



a man or a woman should only 
come in marriage. The reason for 
this, stated Mr. Greene, is becaust 
the Christian faith understands the 
psychology of us and marriage. 

It is important, he pointed out, 
to be able to see the other person 
as a unique personality. Mr. 
Greene termed such a relationship 
"I-Thou" as opposed to the "I-It" 
which often occurs when one per- 
son considers another as simply an 
object to be used for his own sat- 
isfaction. 

Finally, he asserted, sex is not 
an end in itself but a symbol, a 
vehicle by which you may know 
who you are and who someone 
else is. 

Mr. Greene finished his talk by 
tig out copies of a booklet,

The Greeks went all out bo make 
this Homecoming Weekend one of 
the most successful and well re- 
membered weekends in recent 
years. 

The Float Parade was hampered 
by the day's rain, but nonetheless, 
the fraternities and sororities came 
through with flying colors. 
Floats May Count In Competition 
The reason the fraternity floats 
were much better than in the past 
may be attributed to the fact that, 
if and only if, there is no snow 
sculpture this year, the winners of 
the float parade will be awarded 
points toward IFC competition. 

The IFC announces its officers 
for this year: President, Louis 
Neusner, AEPi; Vice President, 
Jack Sweeney, QTV; Treasurer, 
Raymond Litchfield, SAE, Secre- 
tary, Morris Silverman, TEP. 

In addition to the officers, the 
following appointments have been 
made: Rushing Chairman, Bernard 
Garde tto and Greek Ball Chair- 
man, William Mahoney. 

Scholarship To Be Awarded 

The IFC scholarship will be 
open for application in about two 
weeks. Any member of a frater- 
nity is eligible for this scholarship. 
The recipient will be chosen by a 
committee of the IFC. Further de- 
tails will be given later.

are back in business. They have 
changed their name to the 01' Tads

1956 Winter Carnie 
Large Turnout Gets 
Project Underway 

Over 130 students met Wednes- 
day night at Arnold House to dis- 
cuss plans for Winter Carnival 
Weekend. 

Facing the group were four pro- 
posals for the organizational plan 
of the weekend. During the dis- 
cussion of the proposals, Harry 
"Buzz" Johnson and Judith Wolk, 
executive officers of last year's 
committee, offered advice from 
their experiences. 

The students' choice was a plan 
submitted from the floor by Fran- 
cis Driscoll. The plan places four 
co-chairmen in charge of the week- 
end with the junior class officers 
as advisors. The four elected were 
Nancy Konopka, William Ma- 
honey, Francis Driscoll, and Paul 
Marks. 

Two of these chairmen will head 
an Activities committee, and the 
other two will be in charge of the 
Ball. Finance and Publicity com- 
mittees will work between the two.

Top Senate Job; 
In Second Spot 




NEWLY ELECTED OFFICERS of the Student Government are 
sworn in by Men's Judiciary Chief, Richard Steele. Left to right: 
George Cole, president; Lois Toko, vice president; Roger Babb, 
treasurer; Marcia Winegard, secretary. (Foleyfoto) 



Senate Committee To Examine 
Student Working Conditions 



An Ad Hoc committee of Roger 
Babb, Mona Harrington, Richard 
Keogh, and Joseph Larson to in- 
vestigate student working condi- 
tions on campus was established 
at Tuesday's senate meeting. 

This motion of Keogh's one of 
the seven he submitted, was passed 
unanimously after President 
George Cole made it clear that 
people can be chosen to serve on 
a committee in a motion without 
violating the constitution. 
Basis For Selection 

When asked by John Chaffee 
why these particular people had 
been selected, Keogh explained 
that Babb and Larson had worked 
on campus, and thereby have some 
insight into the problem. Harring- 
ton was named because Keogh 
feels her to be a capable senator, 
and thinks it advisable to have "a 
member of the fairer sex" on the 
committee. 

"1 am not the best one to talk 
about the abilities of Richard 
Keogh," Keogh stated. 

Twelve other motions were 
passed in the two and a quite* 
hour meeting, and only one was 
defeated. Five motions were tabled 
until next week, two of which 
would amend the constitution, 
while one would be a by-law 
amendment. 

Journalism For Frosh, Sophs 

Another Keogh motion to have 
the curriculum committee investi- 
gate the possibility of offering 
journalism courses to freshmen 
and sophomores was unanimously 
carried after an objection by Mona 
Harrington as to the wording of 
the motion was cleared up. 

Beginning in this issue of the 
Collegian, committee chairmanship 
appointments will appear on the 
senate agenda. This is the result 



of a motion made by Robert Tut- 
hill and passed with no dissenting 
votes. 

A motion made by John Chaffee 
to have the chain blocking the 
road behind Baker removed and 
relocated carried unanimously. 

Mona Harrington moved that a 
motion by Larson which would 
give the power of determining rep- 
resentation in dorms and of com- 
muters to the elections committee 
be tabled as Larson had to leave 
before the motion reached the floor. 
This motion, which may arouse 
controversy, will come up again 
lieXt Week. 



Owners Retrieve 
Strayed URI Ram 

Rnmcy III, the University of 
Rhode Island mascot, was peace- 
fully retrieved by his owners oarly 
yesterday morning. 

The horned animal, which has 
bMR) an uninvited truest at some 
unknown hiding place on campus 
since last Saturday's fool hall 
game, was taken back to Kingston 
by three I'KI students. 



Civil Service Exam 
Is More General 

Between 8,000 and 10,000 posi- 
tions, paying from $3670 to$452,"> 
a year will be filled by those who 
pass the U.S. Civil Service Exam. 

Philip Young, chairman of the 
U.S. Civil Service Commission an- 
nounced that the new Federal- 
Service Entrance Examination, 
for the first time, gives the non- 
specialist or graduate an opportu- 
nity to compete for a Federal 
Management internship. Formerly, 
only persons who specialized in 
certain fields were permitted to 
take the Junior Management As- 
sistant examination. 

Applications for the exam may 
be taken from the placement of- 
fices, and must returned by No- 
vember 18. The exam itself will 
be given in Amherst on December 
10. 



Sen. Kennedy Seekl 
Academy Candidates 

Dean Robert. S. Hopkins has 
received a letter from Senator 
John F. Kennedy asking all stu- 
dents interested in either the U.S. 
Naval Academy, the U.S. Military 
Academy, or the U.S. Air Force 
Academy to write to him.

Winegard, Babb Get 
Secretary, Bursar 
Tasks To Fill Slate 

George Cole, pressed much hard- 
er than last year when he was 
swept into the senate presidency by 
a unanimous vote, was re-elected 
to that position Tuesday night at 
Skinner. 

Cole thus becomes the first man 
ever to lead the student govern- 
ment for more than one year. Last 
year, he was the first junior ever 
to be elected president. 

Lois Toko was re-elected to the 
vice-president office over Mona 
Harrington. The senate unanimous- 
ly elected Marcia Winegard secre- 
tary and Roger Babb, Cole's op- 
ponent in the battle for the presi- 
dency, treasurer. 

Can Do Many Things 

The senate rose and applauded 
Cole as he re-entered the room 
after his election. After having 
been sworn into office by Richard 
Steele, chief justice of the General 
Court, Cole thanked the senate 
"for having faith to elec t me 
again," saying, "I think we can do 
many things this year . . . many 
things." 

In his sophomore year, Cole 
served as chairman of the consti- 
tutional revision committee, and 
also on the finance committee. In 
the spring of that year, he was 
chosen president pro tern, to serve 
until October of the following year 
at which time he was unanimously 
elected president. 

Most Progressive in Years 

Cole said after the election, "I 
hope that the experience that was 
gained last year will be of benefit 
to the student government this 
year. I'm expecting this year's sen- 
ate to be one of the most progress- 
ive in many years." 

Toko has been in the senate for 
four years, serving for a year on 
the finance committee as well as 
being last year's vice president. 

Elected secretary pro tern last 
May, Winegard was unopposed in 
the election for that office. Last 
year she served on the calendar 
committee and RSO. 

Babb will be chairman of the 
finance committee this year, his 
second as a senator. Last year he 
served on this committee.

MUD SLINGING 

Mud. Mud. Mud. Slush, gurgle, stomp. 

Sick and tired of the mud situation, is 
that it? Well, let's stop talking about it and 
DO something. 

Never mind the symmetry of the campus, 
we need a little practical thinking to combat 
this dirty situation. Why, may we ask, don't 
they build sidewalks where the students 
have already shown a preference by trampl- 
ing dirt roads? 

Carried to a logical extreme, of course, 
this solution could become ridiculous. We 
would end up having the only paved campus 
in the world. From Kappa Alpha Theta to 
Q.T.V. would be one mass of black concrete. 
Think of what would happen to that ancient 
and honorable institution known as "grass- 
ing." 

No, we don't want that, but what about 
a nice long straight line between Hasbrouck 
and the pond walk? And another one be- 
tween that and Mem Hall? Maybe a little 
one, straight as an arrow, from Skinner to 
the Commons. 

In past years, the Collegian has had an 
annual campaign for Walk on Walks. Well, 
right here and now, we have decided this is 
unfair. After all, how can people walk on 
walks if there aren't any useful ones in 
sight? The only other solution is to take 
off the shoes and go barefoot. 

Come to think of it, this would also be 
interesting. M. L. 



Was ist das WUS? 

There is an organization known as 
"WUS" which we hear about once or twice 
a year. What is it anyway? 

It receives over half the money from the 
Campus Chest each year. WUS is short for 
World University Service which is a student- 
to-student program of mutual assistance, co- 
operation, and education. It is a world-wide 
channel for international cooperation with 
thirty-eight national branches in Africa, 
Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North 
America. 

WUS constructs TB sanatoria, operates 
student health centers, builds dorms and stu- 
dent recreational centers, and sponsors uni- 
versity affiliations and international contact. 

Right now in Calcutta 3000 students have 
no place to live, but they have an endless 
drive to learn. 100,000 students were desti- 
tuted by recent floods in Assam, India. 

Elsewhere in Japan, for example, 20,000 
Japanese college students are tuberculous. 

American students, however, never meet 
these conditions and are not even aware that 
they exist. 

But they do, and WUS is seeking to help 
rectify these conditions. Tomorrow in Skin- 
ner at 10 a.m. the Provost will welcome stu- 
dents and faculty members from many New 
England colleges at the World University 
Service conference. 

The theme of the conference is: "The 
University India's Future." The major 
speaker will be M. S. Sundaram, from the 
Indian ECmbMty in Washington. 

Hero is an O pp o rtu nity for us to learn 
firsthand of the needs of our fellow students 
in different parts of the world. 

The challenge of the East concerns every- 
one of us. This challenge will be framed 
largely by the students in Eastern colleges 
and universities. V.V. 



And There We Were! 

(As told to the Collegian reporter by Joel Wolf son, 
who was in the Infirmary uhen the Soccer turn returned.) 

It was ten minutes past twelve in the morning. 
Hobbling in out of the heavy rain were twenty 
weary, blood-covered Redmen, helping each other 
along. In their spattered clothes, they resembled 
the remnants of an entire machine division am- 
bushed on a hill in North Korea. The shock of the 
recent bus crash could still be read on their faces. 

"Although fractures, cuts, bruises, black eyes 
and broken teeth took a heavy toll, all of the fel- 
lows joined in thanking God that none of their 
team mates had been killed in the almost disastrous 
crash." 

Word reached the other patients quickly. Coach 
Briggs, they said, had to be helped, forcefully, from 
the scene, because his concern for his players out- 
weighed his thoughts for his own well-being. Ad- 
mitted to the hospital, he was reported to have had 
a severe shake-up with possible fractures. 

An ironic thought came in a comment from Ted 
Lee, who recalled seeing a white sign in the river 
which read, "Bridge Out." 

Still, people could laugh. "Well," said Chuck 
Collins, "I guess I'll have the chance to study. I've 
been waiting all week." 

Mitch Finegold, himself badly bruised, noticed 
blood all over the clothes of Ted Lee, and jokingly 
called out, "Hey, Ted, remember I'm an agent for 
Campus Cleaners, and I'll be only too happy to clean 
all of your gear." 

All of the fellows agreed that the bus had not 
been traveling at a speed greater than thirty miles 
per hour, before the crash. The driver, they pointed 
out, was not at fault in any way for the accident. 



Senate Who's Who: 

President Cole 

by John B. Chaffee, Jr. 

A six foot two inch, twenty year old sen- 
ior from Plamville was re-elected Senate 
president last Tuesday evening. George 
Fraser Cole is a government major with a 
long record of student activities, including 
Adelphia, International Relations Club, and 
two years in the senate behind him. Origin- 
ally selected to serve as president pro tern 
for the summer of 1954, George was the 
unanimous choice of his fellow senators for 
the presidency last year. 

The vote last Tuesday was much closer, 
but no man can hold high public office with- 
out either making enemies or alienating 
friends. The re-election itself, speaks for 
George's capacity to lead, his past record, 
and the high regard the senate has for this 
personable brown-eyed member of Sigma 
Phi Epsilon. 

George feels that the present senate is 
potentially, "a lot stronger," than last year. 
He cites a more experienced membership, 
and an increased interest in real campus 
problems as two major reasons for holding 
this opinion. 

According to its president, a number of 
major issues and projects are in store for the 
senate this year. Some of these are as fol- 
lows: A Student Union internal planning 
committee, continued work on the traffic 
and parking problem, a move to get more 
students participating in campus activities, 
a revised edition of the "Student Spotlight," 
and more cooperation with other college stu- 
dent government groups, such as those of 
Amherst, Smith, and the University of 
Connecticut. 

Perhaps his greatest contribution to 
UMass has gone almost unnoticed. Up to a 
short time ago, it was the practice of the 
senate president to antagonize the adminis- 
tration in an effort to get things done. But 
last year a new approach was attempted, 
and present relations between the senate and 
the administration are excellent. Two men 
must share the glory of this accomplishment 
— University President Jean Paul Mather, 
and Senate President George Cole. 



Open Meeting for Student Workers 

There will he nn open meeting of the senate 
committee on student workers conditions Tues- 
day, October 25, nfler the senate meeting in 
Skinner. The committee invites all interested 
persons to attend this hearing. 



VIEWS 
— AND— 
REVIEWS 



by Susan Hearty 

The second appearance of the 
Bishop's Company in Amherst on 
Monday evening was again a suc- 
cess. Their production was an 
adaptation of Herman Melville's 
short story, Billy Budd. 

The play, even though it is pre- 
sented without the benefit of scen- 
ery or elaborate costume, conveys 
its meaning clearly as it pro- 
gresses. 

This is a poignant story involv- 
ing the struggle of good versus 
evil, and the difficult decision 
which must be made to distinguish 
right from wrong. 

Billy Budd, a young sailor im- 
pressed on a British man of war 
in the late 1790's, represents all 
that is good in man. His counter- 
part is the Master of Anns, Clag- 
gart, a bitter deceitful person who 
acts only from evil motivation. 

Throughout the play the Master 
at Arms plots Billy's downfall. 
Billy, on the other hand can see no 
malice in his actions. Thus the 
forces of good and evil are set in 
action. 

The play comes to a climax 
when Billy accidentally kills the 
Master at Arms in a fight. This 
comes when Billy finally sees his 
superior officer in his true light. 

It is at this point that its seem3 
as though the Master at Arms, 
even in death, has succeeded in 
destroying Billy. It almost appears 
as though evil 1 has triumphed over 
good. However as Billy as about 
to be hanged, he cries, "God Bless 
Captain Vere!" This proved to the 
audience that Billy was good and 
had enough kindness in his heart 
to forgive Captain Vere for con- 
demning him to death. 

Rudy Vest, the young man who 
played the title role, was very well 
cast. He seemed to live the role 



as the essence of innocence and 
child-like goodness. 

James Bellesi, as the Master at 
Aims, as good, although he was 
a little overpowering at times. 
This was quite different from his 
role of Cuthman in The Boy ivith 
the Cart, the company's first per- 
formance in Amherst. 

The most outstanding perform- 
ance was that of James Wheaton 
as the understanding, noble, yet 
stubborn, Captain Vere. Mr. 
Wheaton conveyed to the audience 
the desperate situation and feel- 
ings which he had to face in mak- 
ing the decision between right and 
wrong, namely, Billy's condemna- 
tion or freedom. 



A Whale of a Tale 

It all started with AEPi. They 
built a whale, a nice big whale, 
and they exhibited it at the float 
parade. 

The whale was unhappy. Des- 
pite the rain on Saturday, he was 
out of his element. He was placed 
in the college pond, supposedly to 
live out his natural life. 

He remained there in perfect 
bliss but a few days. Alpha Gamma 
Rho took over. They should know 
better. Poor whale. 

He was shoved and pushed and 
yanked around campus. Sigma 
Kappa found him on their front 
lawn at five yesterday morning. 
"Have you got a flag?" asked the 
AGR pledge. "A flag?" inquired 
the co-ed, opening her eyes. 
"YIKE!" 

But alas, all tales of whales 
must end. It was a fiery death 
for him at the Stockbridge rally. 

He may not replace Metta- 
wampe as a tradition, but he was 
a whale of a lot bigger!

The MaU Pouch 



He 9 s Gone ! 

To the Editor: 

"Swift and definite action" is de- 
cidedly the best policy concerning 
the Rhode Island Ram. 

I was a member of an unsuccess- 
ful expedition to obtain said ram. 
The final escapade of that nocturn- 
al fiasco was an interview with 
several members of "The Ancient 
and Mystic Order of the Keepers 
of the Rhode Island Ram," from 
which we learned their policy con- 
cerning the subject in question. 

When the ram is stolen, the 
"Thieves" are responsible for its 
return to its pen at Rhode Island 
State University. I think that this 
is only fair and just. Why should 
the keepers tow an empty trailer 
from Kingston to Amherst, a dis- 
tance or more than one-hundred 
miles, to retrieve their highly es- 
teemed mascot when there is no 
assurance that the occupant of this 
trailer will be returned to their 
possession ? 

I am sure that the owner of the 
'52 Buick which transported the 
ram to this campus will not be 
very anxious to have his car used 
for this purpose again. In fact, T 
don't think he will he very anxious 
to oven got in his car, until it has 
Keen thoroughly fumigated. In tin- 
same vein, we should not expect a 
student from Rhode Island to do- 
nate his car for ram transporta- 
tion. 

My advice to "our heroes" of 
Theta Chi is t<> Bpmd live dollars 
for ■ l : -Haul-11 trailer, which CM 
Ik- obtained in Amherst, and return 
the ram to its rightful home. 



The prank was one showing good 
collegiate .spirit, we all agree, but 
all good things must come to an 
end. Let's be good sports and re- 
turn Ramcy IV. I am sure that he 
will be happier away from his 
hereditary enemies, the Redmen, 
and among those who know him 
and have experience in feeding and 
caring for him. 

Above all, let's return him be- 
fore the administrations of either 
or both schools take a stand in the 
issue.

Nothing's Wrong 

To the editor: 

What's wrong with individual- 
ism in the student senate? Sena- 
tor Chaffee (Collegian, Oct. 14) 
appears to favor a rather dull, 
spiritless group of student legis- 
lators — a senate lacking original- 
ity, vigor and constructive crit- 
icism. Certainly the heads of our 
student government must be unit- 
ed in purpose, but a lack of indi- 
vidual thought can hardly lead to 
a creative and suecessful senate. 

It would seem that the new 
freshman senators could have 
gained far more from an example 
of the senate in action than fiom 
the gentle tinkle of coffee cups.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21. 19", 



UM Frosh & Stockbridge 
Hosts Today A tA lumni Field 



by Don Evans 

Beginning at 2:30 p.m. this 
afternoon, action abundant will be 
found on the turf of Alumni Field 
with both the freshmen and Stock- 
bridge football squads playing host 
to their respective rivals. 

The Jr. Redmen's record stands 
at no wins and one loss by virtue 
of a beating at the hands of a 
highly touted UConn team two 
weeks ago, 39-0. Today the Red- 
men are out to prove and show the 
type of ball of which they are 
capable. 

Today's lineup will find Larry 
Treadwell of Dover and Bob Foley 
of Dorchester opening at left and 
right end, Dan Desmond and John 
Montose at the tackle slots, Dick 
Quill and Phil Berardi steadying 
the line at guard, and Dick Mar- 
reale of Waltham centering the 
line. 

Kickoff time will find Billy Max- 
well of Mansfield at quarterback, 
Ben Getchell of Marblehead at left 
half, Charley Turner of Haverhill 
at right half, and rounding out the 
backfield will be Bill Goodwin also 
of Marblehead at fullback. 
McGuirk Jr. To Play 

One interesting note on this 



game is that Warren McGuirk, Jr. 
will be playing right end for Wor- 
cester Academy. Warren McGuirk, 
Sr., of course, is Director of Ath- 
letics here at the University. 

It will be interesting to note 
how McGuirk Jr. does on the grid- 
iron of Alumni Field, for maybe 
UMass some day will have their 
first father-son all-star combina-

The Bluedevils from Stockbridge 
also play the part of host today 
when they meet Monson Ac. with 
kickoff at 3 p.m. 

The Aggies have made a credit- 
able showing for themselves this 
year, beating Thayer Ac. 18-0 and 
tying Vermont Ac. 6-6. Monson, 
on the other hand, has been beat- 
en twice this season, but the Blue- 
devils aren't expecting any push- 
over. 

The Aggies feature a hard driv- 
ing line led by Rix and Freed, and 
a fast, bull-like backfield spear- 
headed by Rodenhizer and Loyn. 

Today's game should prove that 
the Stockbridge boys are on cam- 
pus for good. 



SOCCOR 

This weekend will find the scene 
quiet for the UM harriers and 
hooters who enjoy an idle Satur- 
day.

O'Rourkemen Tensed To Stop 
Unbeaten Reign Of Huskies 

Ingram and Kidd Should Bolster Redmen Line 

Northeastern University, with its unbeaten record, its 
pile-driving fullback, and its able small college coach, gets a 
crack at the UMass gridders tomorrow afternoon at Boston. 
Kickoff time is 2 p.m. 

The Huskies are enjoying another typical season, with 
a mark to date of four wins and a tie in five starts. The 

victories came over two minor op- 




CHARLIE MELLEN 
Ace Ground-Gainer for UM 



Chesterfield 

* Made with /Jccufio^ 




ponents — AIC and Bates — and more 
respected opponents — Springfield 
and Hofstra. Their tie was with a 
Yankee Conference team, Rhode 
Island. 

The tie with Rhody may be sig- 
nificant. For the past two seasons, 
the Huskies have played a close 
game with the Rams, and then 
both clubs turned around and 
murdered UMass. In 1953, after 
Rhody beat N'Eastern 7-6, both 
teams toppled the Redmen by same 
score, 41-14. 

Last year the UMen had thtir 
mid-season troubles with both — 
bowing to URI 52-6, and to North- 
eastern 39-0. That it's getting to 
be a habit was proven at Alumni 
Field just last week when the 
Rams did it again, 39-15. 

Watson Left Scene 

The big reasons for the North- 
eastern success against UM have 
been two — fullback Sid Watson and 
Coach Joe Zabilski. Watson, who 
beat UMass single-handedly in '53 
and '54, has graduated. 

The "new Sid Watson" at N'- 
Eastern is Phil Bucalo, a fullback 
who is the leading scorer in New 
England at the moment. He has 
tallied nine touchdowns and two 
extra points in five games for 56 
points. He can run, pass, and play 
defense. The Redmen feel if they 
can stop him, they'll beat North- 
eastern. 

Coach Joe Zabilski takes partic- 
ular pride in beating UMass be- 
cause hiq three teammates from 
Boston College (1941) are running 
the Redmen. Zabilski was a line- 
man on the club that boasted of 
Chet Gladchuk, Hank Woroniez, 
and Chuckin' Charlie CRourke in 
the lineup. 

Same Starters for UMass 
The Redmen will go with the 
same starters that opened against 
Rhode Island. In the attempt to 
snap a three game losing string, 
Coach O'Rourke will have Tom 
Whalen, Charlie Mellen, Dick 
Wright and Roger Barous in the 
backfield. 

The line, which has caused most 
of the trouble for UMass during 
the current slump, will have vet- 
erans Dave Ingram and Russ Kidd 
at ends. Both are fully recovered 
from early-season injuries. 

Art Miller and John McGowan 
will start again at tackles, with 
Jim Dolan. and Charley Carpenter 
at guards. Buzz Allen will be the 
center. 

Lou Varriehione's knee and Hal 
Bowrs' back are the biggest phy- 
sical concerns on the club, hut 
both are expected to play without 
handicap. Buzz Richardson, also 
hurt last week, will return to guard 
duty against the Huskies.

What young people are doing at General Electric 



Young engineer 
pioneers in design 
and sales of new r 

tiny transistors * 

The germanium transistor — some smaller 
than the eraser end of a pencil and able to 
operate on a few thousandths of a watt 
— is probably one of the most promising 
developments in the electronics field today. 
It opens the way to new midget radios, TV 
sets flat enough to hang on a wall and many 
other exciting possibilities. 

One of the men who helped design and 
perfect these tiny transistors— and the man 
who is now head of sales for all General 
Electric germanium products — is James H. 
Sweeney, Manager — Marketing, Semicon 
ductor Products Department. 

Sweeney's Work Interesting, Vital 

As early as 1948, Sweeney was head of a 
group that studied the design and possible 
uses of germanium products. He gained 
national recognition for his work in devel- 
oping and introducing these products to 
other industries, and when a new Semi- 
conductor Products Department was formed 
in 1953, Sweeney was a natural choice for 
the job of marketing these products. 

25,000 College Graduates at General Electric 

When Sweeney came to General Electric in 
1941, he worked in many different depart- 
ments until he finally found the work he 
wanted to do. Like Swrrricv, each of the 
25,000 college-graduate euijilnvees is given 
the chtflCQ to grow, to find the work he does 
best, and t>> ratlin bta full potential. For

Caldwell Talk, Foreign 
On Program; 

by Mary Jo Killoy 

"We have in the last generation 
undergone a revolution in ideas 
which has brought about a differ- 
ent approach to foreign relations. 
The increasing inter-relationship 
of nations and their problems in- 
evitably leads to an increasing 
need for the United Nations." 

Professor Theodore C. Caldwell 
expressed these views in his talk 
at the United Nations Anniver- 
sary Program held at Hamlin 
House Sunday afternoon. Attend- 
ing were Provost and Mrs. Me- 
Cune, Dean Helen Curtis, Miss 
Totman, Mrs. Caldwell, Miss Edna 
Skinner, Miss Margaret Hamlin, 
dormitory and sorority house- 
mothers and over 70 other guests. 

Professor Caldwell discussed the 
League of Nations in respect to 
the United Nations. He pointed out 
that the failure of the League was 
due to the inability of nations to 
understand League principles, and 
their obligations as nations to such 
an organization. Democratic na- 
tions showed a sort of apathetic 
pacifism, unwilling to take any 
kind of action, he said.

In comparison, he asserted that 
the United Nations has shown will-

Education In India Topic

Cultural Counsellor of the Kmtwis- 
sy of India in Washington, D.C., 
delivered the main speech at the 
World University Services Confer- 
ence on October 22 in Skinner Au- 
ditorium. 

Speaking on the topic, "Educa- 
tional Needs of India Today," Mr. 
Sundaram said that India has some 
highly educated minds interested in 
learning for its own sake, in spite 
of the stereotype prevalent among 
American people that India is an 
illiterate country for which there 
is no hope. 

Have Respect For Learning 

The Counsellor explained the 
preeent outlook (Ml learning in 
India. Although there is a high 
illiteracy rate, there is great re-

WHY APATHY? 

The big question of the year is "Is there 
apathy among the student body at the uni- 
versity?" 

There are those who say no, but these 
are the people who are not apathetic. We 
admit that there are people on this campus 
who are not apathetic. 

However what about all the rest of you 
from whom we hear nothing? You are the 
ones who are giving the student body the 
reputation of being apathetic. 

Now let's hear no more of this word. 
Let's see what we can do about this situation. 
Surely you people feel strongly about issues. 
If you can't form an opinion, why not? Is 
it a lack of information ? If so, do something 

about it. 

See what you can find out. We admit 
that there are some things which must be 
kept quiet. However this is usually just a 
temporary caution. 

Is it because of poor presentation of ma- 
terial and facts ? Tell us about it. 

At any rate let us know why you don't 
have opinions. If it is because you aren't 
interested enough in the university, what's 
wrong with the place? A.D.S. 



Let's Investigate 

We are glad to see that the senate has 
decided to take action on the student work- 
ing conditions. 

Since this is the first student investigat- 
ing committee we've had in a long time, we 
are curious to see what results they get. 

Of course the chief problem in forming 
a student committee is the feeling of futility 
which arises after the first meeting when 
no one has showed up. We hope that this 
will not happen since we feel that this group 
will be able to accomplish things and go 
places. 

The best way of insuring this commit- 
tee's success is for all of those people inter- 
ested and/or concerned with the work of 
this committee to show up at Skinner 205 
immediately following the senate meeting 
tonight. A.D.S. 



All Together! 

Lately at the U. of M. there has been 
the undercurrent theme of promoting closer 
relationships between members of the fac- 
ulty and the student body. The best way to 
do this is to have informal gatherings be- 
tween professors of the various departments 
and their students. But it has all amounted 
to just talk, so now the problem is to do 
soemthing about it. 

This informal gatheiing has many ad- 
vantages since both sides profit by it. Profes- 
sors get the chance to meet some of their 
really interested students informally, and to 
talk and further develop interesting topics 
which they do not have the time to expound 
on in the classroom. They also get insight 
into the niiiuls and viewpoints of their stu- 
dents. This aids them in knowing how to 
effectively present material in the classroom. 
These informal talks aid the students For 
they gain a better understanding of their 
subjects and more information relating to 
them. 

Some of the more progressive colleges in 
this country use this s>Mem of informal 
classroom discussion. Attendance is not com- 
pulsory, hut the students and teachers gath- 



Political Potpourri: 



Chairmen Questioned 

by Micki Marcucci 

"Who else is there?" asked George Cole, recent- 
ly re-elected senate president, when some of his 
ii.mmittee chairmanship appointments were ques- 
tioned by both senators and non-senators. 

The IUUBM, published ahead of the actual for- 
mal appointments for the first time have aroused 
the surprise of some, the indignation of others, and 
the quiet acceptance of a few. 

The main complaint from some of the senators 
seems to be that solons who have had at least a 
year's experience in the senate were passed by on 
the chairmanships in favor of "freshman" senators 
— those who are beginning their first year in stu- 
dent government. 

Incompetency to Favoritism 

Other gripes run from observations that the 
senators appointed are not competent for the job — 
even if they are experienced — to opinions that Cole 
is appointing an executive committee that will give 
him no trouble or blocks. 

Actually, when the matter is considered objec- 
tively, most of the appointments are logical and 
good, but not all. Babb on finance, Snead on build- 
ings and grounds, Larson on boarding halls, and 
Harrington on curriculum are experienced in the 
senate and also in the fields of their committee 
work. Evelyn Murphy as activities chairman is 
probably a good choice, but this is one that has 
caused resentment on the part of slightly indig- 
nant senate veterans who were not given chairman- 
ships since Miss Murphy is a new senator. Mickey 
Daniels as constitutional revisions chairman is also 
questioned on the same grounds, but Miss Daniels, 
as a government major and president of her soror- 
ity, is well fitted for the job. A further criticism 
of this chairmanship is that a sophomore or junior 
should have been appointed to gain experience for 
next year. Miss Daniels is a senior. 

John Rosenberg, elections committee appointee, 
has senate experience but opinion is considerably 
divided as to his suitableness for this committee. 
Joe McParland as public relations committee chair- 
man, has caused much controversy. McParland is 
a new senator elected at large last spring. Be- 
cause of his lack of experience in the senate and 
in this field, it is felt by many that this choice was 
an unwise one. 

What About Public Relations? 

The public relations committee of the senate 
has the purpose of promoting publicity and good 
public relations for the entire university — not for 
the senate alone as is thought by some. In the uni- 
versity administration there is a man— one man — 
who also has this function. He is Robert J. Mc- 
Cartnrr, Director of News and Publications. His 
office is in South College. Mr. McCartney with an 
understaffed office occupied considerably with me- 
chanical but necessary matters such as the publi- 
cation of catalogues, information booklet, etc., must 
do more creative aspects of public relations prac- 
tically on his own time. Why couldnt the senate 
committee work with, under, and advised by Mc- 
Cartney? 

Yet McCartney, like most of the people in South 
College and some of the students too, is doubtful 
about the abilities and dependableness of students 
in doing jobs other than routine matter of as im- 
porant a field as public relations. 

In other words, the administration has to be 
convinced to allow itself to be helped. The com- 
mittee must be headed by some one with enough 
enthusiasm to get over this initial hurdle and also 
with the ability to do the work. McParland ? 

The agenda for tonight, unlike last week's, is 
quite balanced. Finance, buildings and grounds, 
boarding halls, and elections will all be touched 
upon. 

Motions to watch for controversy are the appro- 
priation of $105 to send the Bay State Rifles drill 
team to the Brandeis game, the appropriation of 
$90 for the buying of copies of Robert's Rules of 
Ordt • r, and the making public of election results. 



er 'together and discuss their subjects. This 
is pei'haps too advanced for our school but 
some educators claim that it is an ideal sys- 
tem. However, time will tell. We here at 
the university should not disregard new de- 
velopments. Those discussion hours can 
supplement the real thing if we make the 
initial Step and get members of the faculty 

to endorse it. 

Two members of the economic depart- 
ment held an informal discussion last I'Yi 
day evening, and from all reports it worked 
out quite well. So let's not stop here, hut 
J€?t other membeiV of the faculty to accept 
the challenge ami institute their own ac- 
quaintance and discussion periods. C.F.L. 



New Building 
To Go Up 
November 5 

by Evelyn Cohen 

How many times a day do we 
pass the new classroom building 
under construction next to North 
College? 

At the least, we see it three or 
four times a day, yet most of us 
have never stopped to realize the 
va»t amount of work and skilled 
workers its procedure entails 

The finished building will be 
"U" shaped in form. It will consist 
of 42 classrooms, and about 60 
dtFices. The two wings will consist 
of three floors and the front will 
have four floors. The offices are to 
be situated in the front section 
and the clasrooms in the wings. 

The building's face now looks 
upon North College. But soon 
North College will be torn down 
and we will have a complete front 
view of our new structure. The 
building will be of brick with 
granite trim and a granite stair 
approach to the front. From the 
entrance we will come into a lobby 
with travertine floors and walls. 
From here we can turn into cor- 
ridors and view our new modern 
class rooms. There shall be ac- 
eoustieal tile ceilings, asphalt tile 
floors, and aluminum windows. 

This finished structure sounds 
wonderful and we are looking for- 
ward to the finished product, but 
consider some of the seemingly 
impossible means by which the end 
will be attained. The approximate- 
ly 40 men on the job are work- 
ing on a "lift slab" construction. 
This means that the pouring of all 
floors is done on the ground, one 
on top of the other. A double coat 
of wax is applied bctwen the slabs 
to keep them from sticking to- 
gether. 

All the piping for electrical 
work required for a particular 
floor is placed in its respective 
slab while it is on the ground. It 
takes the men roughly five days 
to complete the cement job on one 
floor. About November 5, we will 
see an outstanding feature begun. 
From every orange colored column 
that you now see projected in the 
air, a hydraulic jack will be ex- 
tended to connect with the collars 
placed around the bottom of the 
columns. 

A hydraulic oil hose goes to the 
jacks and they are thus enabled 
to lift the 4.000 feet of floor to 
be moved at time, weighing about 
200 tons. Four feet will be lifted 
in one hour. The columns are 
thirty feet long and so we expect 
the roof slab to take about eight 
hours to put in place. Granted 
there will be a tremendous audi- 
ence viewing this process. 

One of the most used machines 
on the job is the crane. This must 
be run by experienced hands. It 
is amazing how it can lift a huge 
weight from the ground, swing it 
in the air, and deposit it where it 
is needed. It also helped dig the 
underground tunnels around the 
building which will enclose all nec- 
essary piping. 

The hurricanes, floods, and gen- 
eral heavy construction h a \ < 
caused some difficulty in being 
nadily able to maintain steel and 
cement. However, K r, x>d progress 
has bMt1 made and the building 
should be completed about July of 
next year. 

The workers want ns all to know 
that they think the University is 
grand, and that Ihey are proud 
to be part of helping to make it 

even more grand. 



MSU Prexy to Speak 

by John B. Chaffee. Jr. 

Tomorrow afternoon at 1:30 the 
doors of Bowker Auditorium will 
offically open for the first time 
since April, 1054. And the Uni- 
versity is indeed fortunate to have 
for its guest speaker on this oc- 
casion the President of Michigan 
state University, Dr. John A. 
Hannah. 

The First Joint Annual Confer- 
ence of the College of Agriculture 
and School of Home Economics is 
being held this week, and Dr. Han- 
nah, something of an agricultural 
expert, is to deliver the principle 
address. His topic will be, "The 
Land-Grant Institution in an Ur- 
ban State." Members of the Uni- 
versity faculty and student body 
are invited to hear President Han- 
nah's address. 

Dr. Hannah was born in Grand 
Rapids, Michigan on October 9, 
1902. He graduated from Michi- 
gan State in 1923, has written a 
number of magazine articles, and 
travelled widely throughout Latin 
America and Asia. Married, he is 
the father of four children. 



Some double-timers at the 
Dining Commons received a 
scare at supper the other 
night when one knight stalked 
through the halls with bow 
and quiver. Another bloody 
Aigisthos banquet? No. Still 
we suggest that all UMass 
men bring along their armor 
when they go courting at the 
Dining Commons. 



In 1933 he served as chairman 
of the United States delegation to 
the World's Poultry Congress in 
Rome, and he was a member of 
this countries delegation to Leip- 
zig in 1936 and again in 1948 to 
Copenhagen. 

The Michigan State President 
was chairman of the executive 
committee of the Association of 
Land-Grant Colleges and Univer- 
sities from 1949 to 19r>l, after 
serving as president of the As- 
sociation from 1948 to 1949. 

The many contributions to 
American education made by Dv. 
Hannah have not gone unre- 
warded. In 1941 he received an 
honorary degree of doctor of ag- 
riculture from his alma mater. A 
doctor of law degree was awarded 
to him by the University of Michi- 
gan in 1944. Among other institu- 
tions of higher learning that have 
honored this educator are the Uni- 
versity of Florida, and a New 
England land-grant school, the 
University of Rhode Island. 

Member of a great many organi- 
zations, Hannah presently belongs 
to the Detroit Athletic Club, Ro- 
tary, and the University Clubs of 
both Detroit and New York. 

Dr. Hannah has been Chairman 
of the Board of Directors of the 
Detroit Branch of the Federal Re- 
serve Bank of Chicago, and is 
currently a member of the board 
of the Michigan Bell Telephone 
Company. 

In 1953, Dr. Hannah was ap- 
Defense in charge of man-power 
and personnel, a post he held 
until last year. 

Because Michigan State is cele- 
hrating its (Ynteininl, President 
Hannah is flying to Amherst to- 
to East Lansing by air after de- 
morrow morning, and will return 
livering his address. 

Our own President Mather, who 
has repeatedly sjioken of Michigan 
State as a model land-grant insti- 
tution will introduce its president 
I tonvorow afternoon.

STOCKBRIDGE NEWS 

A New Hort Show | AggiesPlowMonson 

All eyes are focused on the 47th 
annual Horticulture Show, to be 
held Nov. 4, 5, and 6 in the cage. 
Students are busily working on 
10 x 10s, and department exhibits. 

This year's theme will be "The 
State Is Our Campus." The over- 
all layout of the show is focused 
on on*- largo map showing each 
department of agriculture. Booths 
will be arranged along the walls 
with the map in the northeast 
corner giving spectators a better 
viewpoint of the work going on in 
each department. 

Another "first" featured at the 
show will be the giving of an 
award to the "Horticulturist of 
the Year." This award is replacing 
the traditional "Hort Queen." This 
year's award will be given to a 
horticulturist in the state of Mas- 
sachusetts who is considered out- 
standing in his particular field. 

Publicity for the show is al- 
ready working through the chan- 
nels of TV, radio, -newspapers, and 
posters, with expectations of push- 
ing this year's attendance way 
over last year's 27,000 mark. 

The Hoi-t Show will be open to 
the public 4:00 to 10:00 p.m., 
Friday, Nov. 4; 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 
p.m., Sat., Nov. 5; and 9:00 a.m. 
to the final closing at 8:00 p.m., 
Sunday, Nov. 6. 



Still undefeated Stockbridge 
stacked up again Friday afternoon 
when they beat Monson Academy 
42-19 at Alumni Field. The Aggies 
dominated throughout the game 
with one of their biggest lines in a 
number of seasons. 

John Sears, quarterback, starred 
in the first half with four touch- 
downs. Bill Rhodinhizer, fullback 
for the Aggies first string ran two 
touchdowns. 

Leading at the half 30-0 the 
Aggies came back again giving 
every player a chance to get into 
the field. 

Scoring in the last two periods 
Monson opened up again to let 
Loynd, back, score the final touch- 
down.

There will be another RALLY,

lot at 7 o'clock, to work up spirit 
for the New Hampton game Fri- 
day. It will be staged by KK, who 
promise it will be even better than 
the last one. 



Bar-B-Q&Morgans 

A program to acquaint visitors 
with the farming fatilities and ag- 
ricultural methods used at UM 
was held Saturday by the Animal 
Husbandary Club. During the day 
there were tours through the 
farm, a Bar-B-Q, a horse show, 
and lectures on different meat cuts. 
Talks were given by John Ho- 
bart, instructor in Animal Hus- 
bandry on inbreeding and cross- 
breeding; by Dr. Baker on the 
breeding goals of the farm; and 
by Professor Archibald on trench 
silos. 

After this everyone went eager- 
ly to the Bar-B-Q pit to sample 
the delicious roast beef. 

A major event of the afternoon 
was the showing of the farms 
morgan horses. It was explained 
how 22 year old Damsel, the best 
and most honored mare, was the 
first horse bought for the Uni- 
versity farm. Because of her ex 
cellence, her descendants have also 
won many ribbons and honors. 



A "Whale of a time" well 
proved its effort in Friday's big 
win. The cheerleaders gunned with 
the ignition of the bonfire into 
"Fight Team Fight." While the 
L00' I turnout echoed on the cheers 
to the team, coaches and school 
but still hadn't had enough when 
the famous campus whale finally 
ashed-out. Deciding to tell every- 
one else about the Stockbridge AgT 
gies, players and students piled in- 
to cars and circuited the town and 



campus with the help of the cam- 
pus cop when red lights inter- 
f erred. 

Urged on by Director Jeffrey's 
words "This is one of the great 
Ra'lies I've ever been at and 1 
know we're going to win tomorow." 
The crowd yelled for Coach Kosa- 
kowski, who thanked the students 
for attending and showing such 
wonderful spirit. 

Captain John Tiemey climaxed 
with: "You be there tomorow and 
we'll win the game for YOU." 



Vying with ATG, as both 
Stockbridge fraternities went 
all out to blast Saturday 
night, Kappa Kappa had to 
import GIRLS from Farleigh 
Dickinson College, NN. J, to 
make up a quota of 50 couples 
but under the able leadership 
of Frank Schultz, Prexy and 
George Hatt, Social Chair- 
man the Harvest setting that 
has been on view for a week 
went into swing and ended up 
with those "Hobos across the 
street" ATG with promise of 
more parties like it.

IV s Greek To Me 



by Jordan Levy 

At the last IFC meeting, Presi- 
dent Louis Neusner and Vice Pres- 
ident Jack Sweeney were elected 
as delegates to the National Inter- 
Fraternity Conference Dec. 2 and 
3 at St. Louis, Mo. 

Accompanying the delegates will 
be Robert Hopkins, Jr. Dean of 
Men. Last year's conference was 
a tremendous success and we hope 
that this year's exchange of ideas 
and information will be even more 
helpful to our fraternities. 

Rushing and Athletics 

Fraternity rushing is going very 
well this year according to IFC 



Rushing Chairman, Bernard Gar- 
detto. The IFC urges that all fra- 
ternities abide by these rushing 
rules: there is to be no rushing in 
the dormitories; no freshmen may 
attend all-men beer parties; fresh- 
men must be out of the fraternity 
houses by 7 p.m. on the nights of 
the individual smokers. 

The IFC trophies for last year's 
winners have been engraved and 
delivered to the fraternities. 

The Intra-Mural Football League 
started last week and Douglas 
Pfeninger, IFC Athletic Chairman, 
says that this year looks as though 
it's going to be a very successful 



one. Any cancelled games will be 
played at the end of the season. 

The next IFC meeting will be 
held at PMD on Oct. 26, at 6:30 
p.m.

ADVENTURES IN SOCIAL SCIENCE: NO. 1 

"The proper study of mankind is man," said Geoffrey Chaucer 
in his immortal Casey at the Bat, and I couldn't agree more. 
In these tangled times it is particularly proper to study man — 
how he lives, how he functions, how he works. Accordingly, this 
column, normally devoted to slapdash waggery, will from time 
to time turn a serious eye on the social sciences. 

In making these occasional departures, I have the hearty ap- 
proval of the makers of Philip Morris Cigarettes, whose interest 
is not only in promoting the pleasure of young Americans by 
providing them with a gentle cigarette, matchlessly blended of 
vintage tobaccos, grown with loving care and harvested with 
tender mercy, then cured with compassionate patience and rolled 
into firm, tasty cylinders and brought to you in king size or 
regular, wrapped in fetching packages of lively crimson and 
pristine white, at prices that wreak no havoc on the most 
stringent of budgets; but who are equally concerned with 
broadening the minds and extending the intellectual vistas of 
every college man and every college woman. 

I, for one, am not unmoved by this great-heartedness in the 
makers of Philip Morris, and though I know it is considered 
chic these days to disparage one's employer, I shall not. Indeed, 
I shall cry "Huzzah!" for the makers of Philip Morris. I shall 
cry "Huzzah!" and "Bon appStit!" and "Stout Fellows!" 

But I digress. For our first lesson in social science, let us turn 
to the study of economics, often called the queen of the social 
sciences. (Sociology is the king of the social sciences. Advertis- 
ing is the jack.) Economics breaks down into two broad general 
classifications: 1) coins; 2) folding money. But before taking 
up these technical aspects, let us survey briefly the history of 
economics. 

Economics was discovered by the Englishman, Adam Smith. 
He published his theories in 1778, but everybody giggled so hard 
that Smith, blushing hotly, gave up the whole thing and went 
into the cough drop business with his brother. 

For long years after that, economics lay neglected while the 
world busied itself with other things, like the birth of Victor 
Hugo, the last days of Pompeii, and the Bunny Hug. 

Then one day while flying a kite during a thunderstorm, the 
American Henry George (also called Thorstein Veblen) dis- 
covered the law of diminishing returns, and then, boy, the fat 
was in the fire! Before you could say "knife," the Industrial 
Revolution was on! Mechanization and steam power resulted in 
prodigies of production. For example, a Welsh artisan named 
Dylan Sigafoos before the Industrial Revolution used to make 
horseshoes by hand at the rate of four a day. After the Indus- 
trial Revolution, with the aid of a steam engine, Sigafoos was 
able to make entire horses. 




csiosfooa wfe» we io SJ^ 'entire korses.-- 



And so it went— factories rising from the plains, cities bur- 
geoning around the factories, transport and commerce keeping 
pace until today, thanks to economies, we have smog, depres- 
sions and economics textbooks at $5.50. tu ahuinun. 1955 

The makers of Philip Morris, ir/io bring you this column, are no 
economists, hut they ito limit r si and supply ami drmnnd. You de~

Mr. Hannah is a past president 
of the American Land-Grant Col-

The United Nations charter car-

tary action, as opposed to that of 
the League, which provided only 
for economic action against ag-

He finished by saying that the 
United Nations has stressed the 
peacetime work of improving 
world conditions, and has gone a 
long way in bringing world prob- 
lems together for solution. 

Madeline May acted as moder- 
ator for a panel composed of for-

Eugene Flint stressed the great 
need of many foreign countries for 
technical and scientific knowledge. 
Through the efforts of the United 
Nations, this is being provided. 
Veto Power Discussed 

In regard to the veto power of 
the Security Council, Bansi-Lal 
Amla expressed the feeling that all 
nations are not given equality in 
this respect. He asserted that the 
veto power should be abandoned or 
extended to all. 

The panel also discussed the 
power of the General Assembly, 
the question of representation, and 



the Charter of the United Nations. 
Entertainment was provided by 
Joyce Duval, Marion Brushway, 
and Christa and Gertraut Wein- 
berger. Miss Duval offered a Span- 
ish song, and danced a tango, ac- 
companied by Miss Brushway on 
the accordian. 

Students Sing German Folk Songs 

The Misses Weinberger, recent- 
ly from Germany, rendered a med- 
ley of folk songs of their country. 
Christa explained that these songs 
were taken from the repertoire of 
a choir they had been members of 
when in Germany. This group trav- 
eled to England, Sweden, Denmark, 
and other countries. The folk song 
was their means of communication 
to peoples of different languages. 

Refreshments were served, and 
informal discussions followed. 

This is the first program spon- 
sored jointly by the four upper- 
class girls' dorms.

Things Went Wright All Day 




The conquering hero, wtih back to wall, as he was 
before taking off on a 91 -yard touchdown jaunt. 



Saturday the Redmen returned 
to the victory column with a 
smashing 33-13 upset over North- 
eastern. Collegian photographer 
Ritchie Robertson was on the 
scene and caught a few shots of 
the UMass triumph. 

Dickie Wright, who scored two 
touchdowns and passed for an- 
other, was the hero of the game 
for the Redmen, and these pictures 
prove it. The camera caught 
Dickie scoring twice. 

The flying center, Ron Matheson, 
was focused by Ev Kosarick be- 
fore the season. Matty got his 
first chance to work from that po- 
sition against the Huskies. Nor- 
mally he's a starting guard. 

A camera couldn't photograph 
the joy in the hearts of the play- 
ers who were really happy to win 
this big one. 




Out of all these white jerseys came a touchdown for 
the maroons. Hal Bowers plunges from the one. 





Dick Wright jogs into the end zone after seven yard 
sweep to make it 27-13. No. 33 appears faked out.

Frosh Harriers Triumph -- 
Gridders, Booters Blanked 



While UMass freshman football 
and soccer teams were being 
blanked by their weekend oppon- 
ents, the yearling cross country 
squad sped to an 18-37 win over 
Mount Hermon here Saturday. 

Eric Dahl, another one of those 
sensational UMass frosh harriers, 
turned another fine race Saturday, 
establishing a record for the new 
2.7 mile course for the freshmen. 
Dahl covered the distance in 14:01 
minutes to win by fifteen seconds. 

Frosh Now 3-1 

The frosh harriers, who are now 
3-1 on the season showed depth 

Wright Wins 
W W Award 

Dickie Wright, UMasa right 
halfback, is the winner of the 
fifth Wellworth Award of the year. 

Wright was the best of a gang 
of good backs that led the Redmen 
to a 33-13 upset win over North- 
eastern Saturday. Wright's run- 
ning all season has been of prize- 
winning calibre, and the Well- 
worth Pharmacy in Amherst is 
happy to reward him as the 
"Athlete of the Week." 



Saturday Dick picked up over 
150 yards all by himself on the 
ground. Ninety-one yards of this 
total came on one jaunt — the third 
TD play of the game for the Red- 
men. This run, longest in several 
seasons for a UMie, broke the 
Husky backs. Wright also scored 
from the seven yard line, and 
passed to Charlie Mellen for a 
third score. It was his day! 



throughout the race. Besides first 
place, Redmen runners also cap- 
tured second, fourth, fifth, and 
sixth spots to clinch tho win. Sum- 
mary: 

First— Dahl (M); second— Mad- 
ara (M)j third — Erlandsen (H); 
fourth— Watt (M); fifth— Thelin 
(M); sixth— Leonard (M). Time: 
14:01. 

Gridders Blanked 7-0 

Friday afternoon, the frosh grid- 
der were shutout by Worcester 
Academy, 7-0, and the soccer team 
took it on the chin, 1-0, from the 
UConn frosh. 

A long pass from lefty Barry 
Parse to end Lou D'Allessandro 
gave Worcester the only touch- 
down of the football contest. The 
Redmen line impressed, as did the 
pass defense in this low scoring 
ball game. It was the only home 
appearance of the year for the Lit- 
tle Redmen. 

The soccer team had an 0-0 tie 
with four minutes left, but a 
UConn forward got past the de- 
fense and shot a goal past the UM 
netminder Pete Padden. The frosh 
play at Monson High today. 



Intramural Program Boasts 
Smooth Organizational Setup 

Coach Woroniez Has Kidd, MacRae As Top Aides 



by Don Kvans 

The 1965 edition of the Intra- 
mural Touch Football program got 

underway last Thursday night 
after being- postponed for three 
nights, by rain, mud, and other 
strange situations that usually sur- 
round the UM campus. 

I Oder the able guidance of 
Coach Hank Woroniez and his two 
assistants, Ken MacRae and Russ 



Harriers Idle 

Coach Bill Footrick's cross 
country varsity takes a rest this 
week, with no match slated until 
Saturday. The Harriers will then 
compete in the Yankee Conference 
championships at Orono, Maine. In 
that race, Squeaky Horn of UM 
will be competing with his only 
conqueror of the year, Lew Steig- 
litz of UConn. 




"Cappy" Kidd, the Intramural pro- 
gram this year can actually be 
called in the experimental stage. 
Council To Be Formed 
Coach Woroniez is hoping to set 
up an Intramural Council which 



will act as the final judge for any 
problem! or disagreements result- 
ing from the playing, scheduling, 
or officiating of any of the football 
games. 

Those who have played ball 
can appreciate how a council of 
this sort would revolutionize the 
Intramural program. The Sport. 
Dept. of the Collegian will stand 
behind Coach Woroniez and offer 
any assistance which might be 
needed to make this idea become a 
reality. 

Kidd and MacRea Help 

Although actual competition has 
only been in progress for two 
nights, much of the credit for its 
success so far must go to Cappy 
Kidd and Kenny MacRea. They 
have followed the purpose of 
Intramurals to the letter and have 
truly made it a game that fellows 
want to play. 

Three Leagues Participate 

The program this year is set up 
a.- in years past with three separ- 
ate leagues. The first league, or 
Fraternity league contains all the 
frat houses on campus. The Dorm- 
itory league has all the A teams 
of the different dorms on campus, 
and includes, Baker A, Brooks, 
Butterfield, Chadbourne A, Green- 
ough, Mills, Lewis A, Thatcher, 
and VanMeter. 

In the third league, or Independ- 
ent League, we find Baker A, B, 



and C, Chadbourne B, Lewis B, 
Middlesex, Plymouth, Berkshire, 
The Old Tads, who last year were 
better known as the SAE Rejects,

Last Friday night in the Frater- 
nity League, Kappa Sig vs. Theta 
Chi was called off by agreement of 
both teams. 

Also, TEP triumphed over Al-

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1955 



Redmen Rebound to Trounce Favored Northeastern 



Wright, Mellen Lead UMass Offensive 
As Underdogs Post 33-13 Upset Win 

The resurgent UMass Redmen unleashed a vicious attack 
■gainst a helpless Northeastern line Saturday and went on to 
defeat the Huskies convincingly, 33-13, before 5100 stunned 

fans at Boston. 

The UMass backs, f "nding holes to drive through for the 
first time in weeks, put on a real show to topple NU from the 
unbeaten ranks. Dick Wright and 



Charlie Mellen each scored two 
touchdowns ,and Hal Bowers added 
a fifth In the final period. Both 
Wright and Mellen turned in one 
sparkling run— Wright on an 
atomic quick opener for 91 yards, 
and Mellen on a screen pass for 
44 yards. 

There were not too many happy 
faces on the UMass side when the 
Huskies took the opening kickoff 
and moved 70 yards to score in 
nine plays. Phil Bucalo, New Eng- 
land's leading scorer, did most of 
the carrying during this drive, 
which the UM line could not halt. 
Bucalo scored from the four, and 
Buzz Allen blocked the point at- 
tempt. 

Redmen Take Charge 

But as soon as the Redmen got 
their hands on the ball, they took 
charge. They bounced right back 
to take Northc-astcrn's kickoff and 
go 64 yards in ten plays to tie it 
up. 

Roger Barous, who played a 
standout game for the Redmen all 
day, did the important ground work 
on this march. A Tom Whalen- 
Cappy Kidd pass also netted 17 
yards. The scoring play was a 
split-T pass from Wright on a 
pitchout from Whalen, to Mellen 
in the end zone. Charlie converted 
and UM led, 7-6 

Midway in the second quarter the 
home team took the lead again. 
Quarterback Bob Girouard, after

using his running game for fifteen 
minutes, switched to the air and 
caught ihe UMass defense napping. 
Girouard hit halfback Tom Clark 
with a pass on the UM 40, and 
Clark dashed all the way to score. 
Four or five Redmen had a shot 
at Clark after he caught the pass, 
but they couldn't pull the TD- 
bound back to the ground. 

Redmen Rebound Again 

Once again UMass was equal to 
the occasion, as it took the kickoff 
to paydirt in three plays. Barous 
moved the ball from the 27 to the 
45 with a pretty run, and here 
Coach O'Rourke injected Ronnie 
Blume into the lineup at QB. 

Blume stayed in for one play— 
a screen pass to Mellen. Charlie 
caught the ball on the NU 44, 
waited for the screen to do its 
job, then cut right and outraced 
three defenders to the goal. Again 
he booted the point after, and UM 
led 14-13 at the half. 

Tom Hourihan, a Husky end, re- 
covered a UMass fumble on the 30 
early in period three, and the home 
team moved to the UM nineteen. 
Four downs brought them within 
six inches of a first down on the 
nine, but the Redmen held in what 
proved to be the turning point of 
the game. 

On the first play after taking 
over on the nine, Whalen handed 
off to Wright who shot through 
a big hole, stunned the secondary 
with tricky footing, and ran right 
past the safety men for a 91-yard 
touchdown play. It wa3 the long- 
est UMass run from scrimmage 
of the decade. 

Northeastern threatened again, 
but Kidd stopped them by falling 
on a fumble. When the Redmen 
took over. Whalen hit Kidd on a 
58-yard pass play on which Cappy 
made a nice catch and a nice fake. 
Three play later Wright excorted 
the ball into the end zone and it 
was 26-13.

drive. The point after was Cappy's

years. * 

There were a few weird plays 
in the final quarter before the win- 
ners scored their fifth tally. The 
best was a steal of the ball by 
Jimmy Dolan, who almost went all 
the way with the pilfered pigskin. 

UMass finally got their fifth TD 
after Biff MacLean intercepted a

to the one. It took UM four tries 
to get the yard, but Hal Bowers 
finally did it to end the scoring 
on a happy afternoon.

"ON THE CORNER" 



The trip from Amherst to Boston was never so long as it was for 
us last Saturday. For during that span we ensnared a half dozen other 
unsuspecting UMies into a maze of domestic and vehicular difficulties 
more complicated than a registration booklet. 

The beautiful football morning sent this columnist off Bostonward 
accompanied in our '47 Chevy by Barkie Kaligan— boy fiddler. At the 
center of town we picked up person three— a History 5 student who 
did nothing more than serve as a jinx. Troubles began between Bel- 
chertown and Ware when a whine in the car became so bad that we 
clipped out of gear and just stayed in neutral. History 5 student as- 
sumed it was the transmission, and engineer Kaligan verified it. We 

deserted the Chevy. 

UMie number four, a young lady with play in her wheel, picked us 
up at the disaster scene and transported us to Ware (Ware? I don't 
know!) She also remained unknown and comparatively unharmed as 
she dropped us off at an Atlantic Station, and drove on her merry way 
(with History 5 still with her.) 

It was after we had arranged 
towing service for the Chevy to 
Ware that we met parties 5, 6, and 
7 in our episode. They were to- 
gether in Buzz Allen's car and 
were (from left to right) Jean 
Case, Sally Grahn, and Ben Getch- 
ell — three seniors. 

Happy to see familiar faces once 
again, Kaligian (named after this 
newspaper) and I renewed our 
spirits and once again headed for 
Northeastern. 

We had gone about three miles 
when Miss Case developed a bad 
case of flat tire. So while she con- 
trolled the emergency brake and 
Sally G. dusted the front right 
fender, Getchell, Kaligian, and 
yours truly changed the tire. 

It was our luck that the spare 
Jean had hidden behind Buzz Al- 
len's laundry had little or no tread 
on it. In fact the tread was so thin 
it looked like it had been written 
in. We put the tire on anyway.

It was the first real football day 
of the season, and finances kept

him and said, " Northeast ern's team

Coach O'Rourke was happy after 
the win, since it was the first time 
he was able to defeat Joe Zabilski, 
the Husky coach. Charlie was a 
teammate of Joe at BC. O'Rourke 
said just one thing — "The boys 
wanted to play good football, and 
they did." 

* » • 

Ronnie Blume was also a hero. 
He was sent in with a special plan 
from the bench, and he made it 
click for a touchdown. It was a 
screen pass to Charlie Mellen who 
danced forty beautiful yards to 
score. 



The first half was perhaps the 
best in two years for Roger Bar- 
ous. He ran as haid as Bucalo, and 

was a big man on defense, too.

Bob Lyons of the Huskies was 
ejected near the end of the half 
for slugging Buzz Allen on a 
point after attempt. Bill Sears

period when Knos had just come 
into a game for the first time all 

year.

Cup Kid and Dave Ingram made 
nice catches in the game. Ing's 
host was in the second period when

fingertips, and Kidd's was a third 
period beauty where he evaded two 
defenders and almost scored a TD.

UMass wasn't penalized an inch 
until they were set back five yards 
with four minutes left in the game.

Continued from page 7 

would not hold out until Boston, 
Miss Case dropped Sally and Ben 
off somewhere in Tutnick ( ?) and 
went home to get her father's 
Ford. 

More fun began here. At the 
Case's residence (which serves as 
the Pi Phi summer home we think) 
the key to the Ford was in the 
house. 

Sounds simple, but it wasn't. 
The house key wasn't where it 
should have been, the people next 
door had no key, and neither did 
the folks across the street. The 
Bancrofts had a key, but unfortun- 
ately were not at home. How to 
get in her house ? 

Every window in the house was 
locked— we tried as high as the 
third floor. Barkie is quite a climb- 
er — he'll go far. 

Finally, after sinking a few hook 
shots in her outdoor basketball 
court, Jean had an idea. She looker? 
in a place where there was a key 
to a place where there was a key 
to her house where there was a 
key to the Ford. And it was. 

So with half the residential sec- 
tion of Worcester looking on, we 
transferred Buzz' laundry, started 
the Ford, and headed for the game 
at last. And except for the three 
speeding tickets we got, Jean, 
Barkie, and I had no more trouble 
until we got there. 

We all agree that it mi worth 
it to see those fighting Redmen 
come back so valiantly to defeat 
Northeastern, 33-13 — a real cham- 
pionship performance by all.

English Parliamentarian 
ToSpeakAtUMass Commons 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28. 1955 



Wm. Fletcher-Vane To 
Talk On Agr. and Forestry 

Mr. William M. Fletcher-Vane, 
Member of Parliament, will speak 
on agriculture and forestry in 
England at 12:45 p.m. tomorrow 
in the Commons following a lunch- 
eon in his honor. 

According to George Westcott 
of the agricultural economics de- 
partment, Mr. Fletcher-Vane is in 
the United States for a speaking 
tour sponsored by the British In- 
clination Service. Mr. Westcott is 
in charge of UM arrangements 
for the visitor. 

To Tour UM Campus 

The first pan of the parliament 
member's visit includes a tour of 
Harvard today. Tomorrow, he will 
visit UM and the Harvard 
Forest in Petersham. His campus 
visit will include a tour of UM 
and the Connecticut Valley. It is 
reported that he may attend the 
UM vs. Vermont football game in 
the afternoon. He will return to 
Boston on Sunday. 

Tickets are no longer available 
for the luncheon, but the speech 
is open to the public. 

Went Through Dunkirk 

Mr. Fletcher-Vane is presently 



Parliamentary Private Secretary 
to the Joint Parliamentary Under- 
Secretary of State for Foreign 
Affairs R. H. Thurton. He is also 
Deputy Lieutenant Governor of 
the County of Westmorland, the 
district that has sent him to Parli- 
ament, and serves as a Justice of 
the Peace. He is a member of the 
Historic Buildings Council for 
England. 

The member of parliament 
served in France in World War 
II and was evacuated through 
Dunkirk in 1940, winning a Men- 
tion in Dispatches. In 1943 he was 
promoted to Lt. Colonel. In 1945 
he was elected to Parliament from 
Westmorland and has held the 
seat since. 



xMather Tells AAUW 
Two U M Problems 

Two major problems at the uni- 
versity concerning funds for main- 
tenance and an adequate faculty 
were outlined Tuesday night by 
President J. Paul Mather. 

In a speech to the American As- 
sociation of University Women, 
Mather explained a proposed dual 
bill which will come before the 
legislature in December. Mather 
terms this plan "necessary before 
we can think of increasing enroll- 
ment," 

Faculty Salaries Being 
Downgraded 
The first element provides for 
appropriations for maintenance of 
campus classroom buildings. 

The president explained the sec- 
ond problem as the "economy by 
meat axe" process now in effect 
in this state only. He said that a 
personnel commission, working 
apart from the legislature, was 
constantly downgrading the sal- 
aries of the faculty. 

Commission Has Controlled 

For 37 Years 
The president added that the 
commission is a group of non- 
elected people who have controlled 
faculty appointments for 37 years. 
The other eight states which had 
similar control have eliminated the 
commissions. 

"We can't have a reputable in- 
stitution until this is cleaned up," 
finished the president. 



UM Grad Is 

New Tax Man 

A University alumnus has been 
chosen as the new United States 
Commissioner of internal revenue. 

Russell Chase Harrington, of 
the class of 1913, was recommend- 
ed on Oct. 26 by secretary of the 
Treasury Humphrey to replace T. 
Coleman Andrews as the nation's 
new chief tax collector. 

For the past three years vice- 
president of the U.S. Chamber of 
Commerce, Harrington was born 
a< Taunton, Mass. and will take 
office about December 1st. 



Engineers To 
Dedicate New 
Building Here 

A prominent industralist and a 
Massachusetts legislator will par- 
ticipate in the dedication exercises 
of the new $1,350,000 engineering 
building at the university tomor- 
row. 

The main address will be given 
by Maynard M. Boring, who will 
speak on "A New Look at Engin- 
eering Education." Mr. Boring is 
president of the American Society 
of Electrical Engineers and has 
been with the General Electric Co. 
since 1910'. 
New Labs Are Completely Modern 

Representative John P. Morrow, 
a member of the legislature since 
1953 will extend greetings for the 
Commonwealth. 

The new engineering laboratory 
is completely modern in design and 
equipment and adds 3,800 square 
feet of floor area to the wing. 

Engineer's Library Included 

New laboratories for mechani- 
cal, civil, industrial, and metallur- 
gical experimentation are included 
in the new building. Space is also 
provided for a library seating 40 
students. Seven classrooms, two 
drafting rooms, staff office space 
and a university radio studio are 
also provided for. 

The dedication ceremony will be 
held at 10:45 a.m. in the Main 
Engineering Building. The public 
is invited :md an inspection of the 
building and a coffee hour will 
proceed the ceremonies.

3 Hr. Meeting 
Changes Cole's 
Appointments 

In a three hour meeting at 
Skinner Tuesday night, the student 
senate passed eleven motions, two 
of them constitutional amendments, 
and voted on standing committees 
and their chairmanships. 

The senate did not accept two 
of president George Cole's chair- 
manship appointments. John Ros- 
enberg was defeated for the head 
of the elections committee on a 
second vote, after a roll call vote 
showed an 18-18 tie. Muriel Dan- 
iels was denied the chairmanship 
of the constitutional revision com- 
mittee, and was replaced by Rosen- 
berg. Lawrence Parrish replaces 
Rosenberg as head of elections. 
Roll Call Vote Amendment Passes 

A constitutional amendment, 
proposed last week by John Chaf- 
fee and amended by Robert Tut- 
hill, which allows five senators to 
call for an automatic roll call vote, 
was passed. Chaffee said that the 
amendment will let the student 
body see where any senator stands 
on a critical issue through the 
Collegian. 

The amendment was put into ef- 
fect on the second motion after its 
acceptance. The necessary number 
of four other senators backed the 
request for a roll call vote on a 
motion which would approve the 
appropriation of $105 to the Bay 
State Rifles for transportation costs 
to go to the Brandeis game. 
Armor Drill Team Gets $10."> 

Roger Babh, who introduced the 
motion, spoke against it, and later, 
after hearing the discussion, with- 
drew his first remarks, and came 
out in favor of the move. Chaffee, 
the only senator to speak against 
the motion, said that, if the sen- 
ate should allocate money for 
someone to attend the game to 
entertain at halftime, it should be 
to the Precisionettes and band, 
since they were designed for this 
purpose. 

The motion to allocate the $105 
was passed with dissenting votes 
of Chaffee, MOBS Harrington, Miss 

Daniels, and Robert LariTiere.

The drive will be kicked off by 
the faculty variety production, 
"Faculty Frantics," Tuesday night 
at 8:15 in Bowker Aud. 

Half Goes to WUS 

The money collected through stu- 
dent and faculty contributions and 
from proceeds of the show will be 
divided by the Campus Chest com- 
mittee among seven service organ- 
izations, including the World Uni- 
versity Service, which held a re- 
gional conference here Oct. 22. 

WUS, an international organiza- 
tion which promotes student wel- 
fare through mutual aid programs 
of health, scholarship, housing and 
aid to needy students, traditionally 
receives from 50 to 60% of the 
Campus Chest fund. 

Money To Be Divided 

The remainder of the money col- 
lected will be divided among the 
National Scholarship Service and 
Fund for Negro Students, the 
Save the Children Foundation, the 
Jimmy Fund, the Western Chapter 
of the Mass. Heart Association, the 
Hampshire County Public Health 
Association and the United Negro 
College Fund. 

George Dittomassi and Martha 
Martin are co-chairmen of the 
Campus Chest committee. The 
drive will end on Friday, Nov. 4.

ON MARCHING 

The band is not marching at the rally to- 
night. They have refused to participate be- 
cause, they say, this is the last rally of the 
year, and they have bitter memories of pre- 
vious last rallies. 

Two years ago, they got all dressed up, 
marched from Butterfield, and found no one 
else interested enough to greet them. Last 
year, they again donned the maroon suits, 
assembled in front of the Cage, and ended 
up trying to amuse each other. 

This would not happen again, they de- 
clared. For all future rallies, they decided, 
they would have to be notified on the Monday 
before. Despite the fact that this rally is 
listed in the Handbook, for all to see, they 
were not officially told about it, until later in 
the week. 

Adelphia, which sponsors these rallies, 
had an unfortunate change in plans, which 
necessitated this delay. Adelphia is a respon- 
sible organization. So is the band. 

Responsibility to the students of the uni- 
versity is not to be measured in terms of 
whether or not we play our band instru- 
ments, or wear our Adelphia jackets in vain. 

Being a member of a recognized student 
service organization, includes the fulfilling 
of certain obligations to the student body. 
Adelphia is holding a rally tonight. Where 
is the band? M.L. 



pull that body up from the high 
school depths in which it has been 
mired on this point. 

A near- automatic roll call pre- 
vents a senator from hiding in ob- 
scurity on a major issue, as it is 
often charged has been done in 
the past. J. B.C. 



. . . Housing 



The subject of new houses for sororities 
and fraternities is raised every once in a 
while, and sometimes we wonder if some as- 
pects of the campus have been forgotten in 
the mass building plans. 

This is not the case, as the administra- 
tion will testify. Potential sites for new 
homes are being discussed, although details 
are yet to be worked out. The most probable 
site for our new Greek row, will be in the 
northeast corner of campus. This would 
place it behind the new women's physical 
education building, which will be built across 
the dirt road from Hamlin. 

One excellent feature of this plan is that 
when the fraternities and sororities have 
finished paying for their new dwellings, they 
will own them outright. They will not be 
subject to Alumni funds, and other bits of 
red tape, so well known to dormitory resi- 
dents. In case they are sold, the university 
reserves the right to the first option. 

This is only fair, we must agree, and it 
is indeed nice to dream about how the cam- 
pus will look, when WE return for Home- 
coming. M.L.

. . . Voting 



Two issues discussed by the Senate last 
Tuesday evening deserve further campus- 
wide debate and thought. 

The motion to have a roll-call vote on any 
issue before the Senate provided at least 
five members desire huch a voting procedure 
may well serve to make individual student 
legislators mere responsible to their constitu- 
ents. And the motion to make public the re-

Liberian Bush Country 

For Two Years 

by John Rosenberg 

Did you ever dream of spending a year in France, or a summer 
touring Europe, or a couple of years working in some distant country 
after you graduate? Perhaps, but how many of us will ever realize 
such a dream? Very few to be sure. 

Nevertheless, one of those few, 
lucky graduates in 1953 was a 
young lady who was given just 
such an opportunity, and has spent 
the last two years in the position 
of a laboratory technician in a mis- 
sion deep in the Liberia bush 
country. 

Miss Janette Davis, a university 
graduate in 1953, is just that 
young lady. After two years of 
mission work in Africa she is back 
on campus, and is presently work- 
ing in the West Experiment Sta- 
tion across from Knowlton House 
where we had the pleasure of meet- 
ing her this last Wednesday after- 
noon. Janette majored in bacteri- 
ology when she was an undergrad- 
uate, and is now thinking of con- 
tinuing this work on the graduate 
level. 

The August following her grad- 
uation in 1953, was when Janette, 
via England and France, traveled 
by plane to her new adventure — 
helping and teaching natives in the 
wilds of Africa. After landing in 
a coastal town in Liberia, she then 
took a twenty hour trip inland on 
a train, traveling approximately 10 
to 12 miles per hour. The next 
leg of the trip was by lorry, or 
truck, then a 7*4 hour walk until 
they were met by a jeep which 
took them the rest of the way to 
the mission, where she was to 
spend the .next two years. At 
times during the journey on foot, 
however, she was carried in a sort 
of hammock affair, the ends of 
which were tied to a long pole car- 
ried between two natives. Several 
tense moments were experienced 
during rides of this sort, for when 
crossing streams and shallow wat- 
er, the native carriers would mere- 
ly balance the ends of the poles 
on their heads and wade across. 

Janette spent her time employed 
at numerous tasks at the mission. 
Primarily, she helped set up a lab- 
oratory at the mission; but she

Bowker's "Finest Hour" 

by John B. Chaffee, Jr. 

At approximately one forty-five Wednesday afternoon, President Mather stood on 
the rostrum of Bowker Auditorium and introduced what he termed the great and far- 
sighted leader of one of the greatest land-grant universities in the country, "one of the 
most eminent leaders in the field of education," Dr. John A Hannah, President of Michi- 
gan State University. 

Dr. Hannah began by expressing his admiration for President Mather, and went on 
to point out that the problems of land-grant education in Massachusetts are a bit dif- 
ferent from those in Michigan. He said that if the question, "What is the importance 
of land-grant institution in an urban state?" is still being asked more than ninety- 
three years after the passage of the Morrill Act, then the fault lies not with the people 
who ask the question, but with those of whom it is asked — those who are associated 
with the land-grant institutions. 

President Hannah then went on to emphasize the importance of the Morrill Act 
to American history. He believes that the rapid expansion and mechanization of this 
country could not have been possible had not higher education been made possible to 
all instead of a selected few. The Morrill Act, he said, did two things: First, it allowed 
more people to receive an education, and second, it served to change the emphasis of 
American education from studying the classics exclusively, to the problems of living 
people. 

Dr. Hannah pointed out that the future, like the past, of America lies with its 
ability to educate its youth. And this now means its ability and willingness to expand 
its land-grant institutions, for here lies our only hope — the private institutions aren't 
going to keep pace with the population growth. 

But the Michigan State president also sounded a warning. He feels that we have 

placed too much emphasis on technological training, 
not enough on human relations. "If," he said, 
"America worships too much at the shrine of mate- 
rial things, the land-grant institutions have served 
as high priests of the cult." We must strike out in 
a new direction — teaching people how to live in 
peace with one another. And this isn't a violation 
of the land-grant tradition ,but a return to original 
prinicples, for the Morrill Act provided for both 
practical and liberal education. We must, said Dr. 
Hannah, spend more time on the latter. 

The President of Michigan State concluded by 
stressing the obvious need for all of those connected 
with land-grant institutions, students as well as 
faculty and administration, to interpret the institu- 
tion to the people, and the people to the institution, 
when ever and wherever possible.

surprise at the numerous diseases 
which the natives contract and go 
through life with, without bother- 
ing to seek a cure. 

An entomology student would 
have no trouble in securing speci- 
mens for his insect collection if 
he went to Liberia. There Ifl Ml 
abundance of spiders and also 
snakes, many of which are poison- 
ous and deadly. However, because 
of increased settlement in the hin- 
terland, most of the larger ani- 
mals such as leopards and ele- 
phants have migrated further into 
the heart of Africa. 

The mission, which is situated 
in the northeastern corner of Li- 
beria, is almost completely isolated 
from civilization. During the rainy 
season, which lasts from June 
through October, the only road 
through the jungle is impassable. 
Candles and kerosene take the 
place of electric lights, while the 
only water supply is that which 
is collected on the roofs during the 
rainy season and carried in jugs 
on the natives' heads from distant 
wells when there is no rain. 

Although it is a Christian mis- 
sion, most of the natives of the 
area still carry on their old ideas 
and customs. This is clearly shown 
at Christmas time when their coun- 
try devil is carried over into the 
nativity services and the festiv- 
ities are filled with the rhythmic 
dances of their ancestors. From 
the time of their youth, the na- 
tives learn to dance and it is in- 
teresting to note how their whole 
body responds to the beat of the 
drums, and the rhythm of the 
dance. 

Miss Davis stated that she thor- 
oughly enjoyed her experiences in 
Africa, and that she would like 
someday to return and continue 
the greatly needed work which she 
was doing. However, a return trip 
to Africa is not now in her present 
plans for the future, when she 
would like to continue her studies 
in the field of bacteriology. If you 
ever sret • chance to hear one of 
her talks or speak to her person- 
ally on her two years in the wilds 
of Liberia, you will come away, as 
we did, with a much greater under- 
standing and interest in the prob- 
lems of these people who are living 
in our world today. 






fine speakers in the past, and will enjoy many more 
in the future, but Wednesday afternoon may yet 
prove to have been close to its, "finest hour." For 
on that day, a return to basic land-grant principles 
was asked for by a proven leader in the field of 
higher education as he personally and publicly sup- 
ported the ideas and desires of one who is still in 
the process of proving himself to the people of this 
Commonwealth, our own President J. Paul Mather. 



Senate Who's Who: 



Vice President Toko 

The vice president of thp University Senate for 
the second consecutive year is a five foot four inch 
inch senior from Lunenburg known as "Toke." 

Lois E. Toko is a government major beginning 
her third year in the student legislative body. Dur- 
ing her sophomore year, she was appointed chair- 
man of the election committee, and was later se- 
lected to be Senate secretary. A Reveler, she has 
served on the Index staff, Yahoo, Winter Carnival 
and Soph-Senior Hop committees, and last year en- 
joyed the distinction of being chairman of the first 
University Open House. 

Lois, a blue-eyed member of KKC, believes the 
second highest Senate office to be one of both honor 
and importance. And while the vice president should 
work closely with the president, she doesn't believe 
that automatic agreement on all issues need be 
forthcoming. 

According to its twenty-one year old vice presi- 
dent, the Senate is potentially,, "much stronger than 
last year because the senators are more interested, 
capable, and conscious of student needs." Lois went 
on to emphasize her hopes for a cohesive body which 
should sponsor many constructive advancements and 
improvements. Among these are: The purchase of 
ballot boxes for centralized student elections, the 
introduction of universal student identification card, 
the, "clean-up, once and for all, of the election rules." 
and revision and reprinting of the "Student Spot- 
light." 

Lois is a vivacious dusty-blonde who has the abil- 
ity to lead discussion on any issue before the Senate 
in an intelligent, and mature manner. She is held 
in extremely high regard by the majority of her 
fellow sen, and forms the second link in the 

Senate chain of command a chain which has no 
apparent weakness, and will have none as long as 
Vice President Lois Toko continues to have an in- 
(hiencial voice in the matter.

Redmen Seek to Even Season Record 
In Contest Against Vermont Tomorrow 



UM Out To Avenge 
27-25 Loss of 1954 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke's Red- 
men footballers will be after their 
third scalp of the season tomor- ' 
row when they meet Vermont in 
the final game of the brief home 
season at Alumni Field. Kickoff 
time tomorrow is 1:30. 

The eighteenth game in the se- 
ries between the Yankee Confer- 
ence rivals will find the Redmen 
seeking revenge for last season's 
27-25 Vermont win at Burlington. 
UMass has won nine, lost six, and 
tied two in the seventeen previous 
games in the series. 

Coach O'Rourke has made only 
one change in his starting lineup 
for this game. Lou Varrichione, 
sidelined with an injured knee for 
most of the past two weeks, will 
assume his opening post at guard. 
Charlie Carpenter, who started at 
that position the past two weeks, 
will sit it out tomorrow with a 
broken arm. 

Redmen Seek Win No. 3 
UMass will be looking for win 
number three on the year. They 
have lost three. Victories have 
come over AIC and Northeastern, 
while losses were suffered to Har- 
vard, UConn, and Rhode Island. 

Dickie Wright and Charlie Mel- 
len, who have eliminated all com- 
petition at halfback posts for the 
Redmen will lead the ground at-

tack. The man for that extra yard 
or two will be plunging Roger 
Barous, the fullback. 

Tommy Whalen, who missed the 
'54 Vermont game with a bad cold, 
will be calling the signals and 
heaving the passes. His targets 
will be starting ends Dave Ingram 
and Cappy Kidd. 

The middle of the UMass line 
will be bolstered by center Buzz 
Allen, who still manages to show 
up every Saturday despite weekly 
cuts and bruises. Flanking him will 
be guards Jim Dolan and Varri- 
chione, and tackles Art Miller and- 
John McGowan. 

The game will mark the final 
start at home for several of the 
Redmen seniors. Co-captains Mc- 
Gowan and Don Johnson will be 
playing for the final time on home 
soil, as will halfback Hal Bowers, 
center-guard Ron Matheson, guard 
Buzz Johnson, and end Kidd. 
Noble Sidelined Again 
Sidelined for this game as far 
as full time duty go a/e Carpen- 
ter, Ken MacRae, Jack Noble, and 
Buzz Richardson. The latter three 
may see limited service. 

Both squads will be seeking 
their first Yankee Conference vic- 
tory of the year. The Catamounts 
bowed to Rhode Island and Maine 
without scoring a point. UMass lost 
a heartbreaker to UConn, 18-13. 



The Yankee Conference cross 
country championships, with Maine 
favored and UMass and UConn 
rated as major threats, will be run 
off tomorrow at Oi-ono, Maine. 

The Black Bears of Orono will 
be out to defend the title they won 
last year to end a three year reign 
by the Redman. UMass, after 
three straight triumphs in the six 
Uam event, finished dead last in 
19f>4. 

The Maine reason that the home 
club will be favored tomorrow is 
Paul Firlotte. This mercury footed 
harrier from the Pinp Tree State 
won the individual Conference 
honors last year as a junior, and 



is a favorite to repeat-especially 
at home. 

Horn A Big Threat 

But Massachusetts and Connec- 
ticut also have big men— and that 
is why they rate the top challeng- 
ing spots. Bob "Squeaky" Horn of 
the Redmen and Lew Steiglitz of 
the Huskies are both given good 
chances to overhaul the favored 
Firlotte in the '55 classic. 

As for the team prospects, 
UMass coach Bill Footrick believes 
that his club has as good depth 
as any state entry, and will have 
to b" reckoned with in the final 
outcome.

Aggies Tackle New Hampton 
In Home Grid Tussle Today 



Those flames rising from the 
vicinity of Alumni Field last night 
accompanied by wild yells and 
screams were not made a group of 
pagans sacrificing to their favor- 
ite god. It was the spirited pre- 
game rally staged by the Stock- 
bridge students in preparation for 
today's contest with New Hampton 
Prep. Coach Steve Kosakowski's 
boys will be putting their unbeat- 
en record on the line against this 
opponent who is appearing on the 
Aggies schedule for the first time. 
Things did not look bright for 
the Aggies or Coach Kosakowski 
when only 12 men appeared for 
the initial practice of theseason. 
A few more men turned tip later 
and were welded into a fighting, 
hard hitting unit by Kosakowski 



John Sears, Bill Rodenhizer, 
and Dick Ix>ynd are a trio of

emies and tieing Vermont Acad- 
emy. 



already been termed the "sleeper" 
in th*» individual battle, as the 
experts know that Lep can outleg 
them all on a good day. 

Petey Scwarz has finally 
reached- the peak of conditioning 
and will be ready to exert a top 
effort at Orono. The freshman 
star of last year has had no ex- 
ceptional times yet this fail. 

Tim Flynn, Carl Baker, and Lee 

Chisholm are the other three 
UMass runners who are counted 
on to place in the money. The 
finish of the fifth man is probably 
more important than the finis of 
the first man in a six team race. 

Horn, the UMass star, has won 
fourteen of twenty varsity meet- 
in three years and has bowed only 
to Steiglitz this fall. 

Lew, who has reportedly 
knocked a minute off of his time 
of last season, will face Horn Sat- 
urday in the YanCon race, Tues- 
day in the Connecticut Valley 
race, and November 7 in the New 
Englands. 



Bandaged UM 
Booters Face 
B 'port On Rd. 

Larry Briggs will not be coach- 
ing, Charlie Niedzwiecki will not 
be in the goal, Jim Hirtle will not 
be keeping score but the UMass 
soccer team will travel to Connect- 
icut to play the University of 
Bridgeport tomorrow afternoon. 

Coach Briggs is unable to direct 
the team in his usual capable 
fashion because he is still hospital- 
ized after the unfortunate acci- 
dent of two weeks ago. Nied- 
zwiecki, the regular goalie, will be 
unable to block any shot this week. 
He won't even be able to cheer due 
to the wire that is holding his 
broken jaw together. 

Last year's team captain, John 
Suleski, will run the team in its 
struggle with one of the most pow- 
erful squads in New England. 
Last week's upset by Springfield 
was the Bridgeport booters' first 
loss this season. They had a win- 
ning streak of eleven straight until 
this 1-0 setback. A UMas3 win 
would be a great tonic for their 
recuperating coach. 

The local booters are hoping 
that their iron-ribbed defense and 
their strong scoring punch is 
enough to produce a win. Co-Cap- 
tains Mel Allen and Bob Abra- 
hamson, Tom Golas, Teddy Lee, 
Steve Mirsky, and Ken Crooks will 
try to turn back all enemy assaults 
before they can reach the scoring 
zone. Lee Sutcliffe will be guard- 
ing the nets and is a better than 
adequate replacement. Speedy 
Billy Burke and lx>u McCarry are 
being counted on to supply the 
necessary goals.

since Cole had refused Babb's re- 
quest to add Chaffee and Parrish's 
names before the senate voted. 

It was asked that a girl be add- 
ed to the committee on buildings 
and grounds of Keogh, John 
D'Arcy, Jerald Grimes, and David 
Margolis. Charlotte Rahaim was 
selected. 

A battle ensued when Parrish 
asked that Keogh's name be added 
to the elections committee. McPar- 
land voiced the objection that 
Keogh had been involved in con- 
troversies which arose on the com- 
mittee last year. After Keogh read 
a letter from Cole commending his 
fine work on the committee last 
year, the senate voted down the 
committee. 

Chaffee Added To FiComm 
When Keogh's name was re- 
moved, over strenuous objection 
from Keogh, the committee of 
Jean Oleson, Ruth Kirk, Miss Kon- 
opka, Patricia Harriman, James

proved. 

At this point, Chaffee questioned

Hatch Lab. Fire Loss $10,000; 
Research Projects Set Back 



Fire threatening experiments on 
cancer research and nutrition 
caused nearly $10,000 estimated 
damage on Hatch laboratory Fri- 
day night. 

The blaze, starting in an over- 
heated refrigerator motor set back 
some experiments from six to ten 
months, but did not harm animals 
kept in the building for research 
purposes. 

About 800 rats, 80 chinchilla, and 
1500 mice escaped the fire which 
raced through upper portions of 
the two-story wooden building. Am- 
herst firemen quelled the blaze after 
pouring thousands of gallons of 
water on the fire. 

Student Discovered Fire 

Three grad students working in 
the building at the time discovered 
the blaze. One of them, Marcel 
Gagnon, said he heard a whoosh on 
the second floor, and raced upstairs 
with a fire extinguisher where he 
discovered the fire at the rear of 
a lab-classroom. Driven back by 
sulphur dioxide fumes emanating 
from the refrigerator, he crawled 
down the stairs to fresh air. 

Another of the grad students, 
Elizabeth Elbert, had hurried out- 
side to call the Amherst fire de- 
partment. 

Professor Leonard R. Parkinson, 
in charge of the laboratory esti- 
mated damage at $10,000 to $12,000. 
Most major equipment in the build- 
ing, and the animals, were located 
on the first floor, and escaped ma- 
jor damage. 

Nov. 7 Set As 
Primary Date 

Primary elections for freshman 
class officers will be held on Mon- 
day, Nov. 7 at centralized polls 
on campus. 

Three voting places have been 
designated. Residents of Lewis 
and Thatcher and of all the wom- 
en's dorms will vote at the Snack- 
Bar in the Commons. 

All freshman men who live in 
the dorms on the hill will vote at 
Baker. Commuters and all other 
freshmen who do not fall into the 
above catagories will cast their 
ballots at Mem Hall. 

Last Thursday noon was the 
deadline for the filing of nomin- 
ation papers. Of the 23 nominees, 
eight will be chosen in the pri- 
maries; two each for the offices 
of president, vice-president, secre- 
tary, and treasurer. 

No definite date has been set 
for the final elections which will 
take place during the week of Nov. 
14. 



Refrigerator Recently Bought 

The refrigerator had been bought 
by students for about $50. It had 
been in operation only a couple of 
days, according to a university 
spokesman. 

Hatch lab was built in 1892, 
though there have been additions 
since that time. The last important 
fire on the campus was in 1946, 
when a veterans' dorm was des- 
troyed. 



Campus Chest Opens Tonight 
With "Frantics" At Bowker 



Senior Class Meeting 

A senior class meeting will be 
held on Thursday, Nov. 3 at 11 
a.m. in the Old Chapel auditorium. 

Discussion on the senior outing, 
senior class rings and commence- 
ment will be held. 

A report on the Winter Carnival 
will be presented. 




HATCH LAB scene as firemen use aerial ladder to ventilate attic

In a spectacular send-off to this week's Campus Chest 
drive, professors will turn performers for the "Faculty Fran- 
tics," university staff variety production, at Bowker Audi- 
torium tonight. 

The curtain will go up on the all-faculty comedy show, 
a fund-raising project for the Campus Chest, at 8:15 p.m. 

Boasting a cast of over sixty schol- 
arly stars, the show will satirize 
familiar campus personalities and 
institutions, and will display the 
heretofore hidden talents yf usu- 
ally staid professors in dance rou- 
tines, song numbers and farcical 
skits. 

To Compete For Trophy 

The "Frantics," officially open- 
ingthe 1955 Campus Chest drive, 
will be followed up by collections 
in dormitories, fraternities and so- 
rorities on Wednesday, Thursday, 
and Friday. Each campus residence 
has been supplied by the Maroon 
Key with a "thermometer" chart 
on which to record its contribu- 
tions. 

A trophy will be awarded to 
the dormitory having the highest 
percentage of donations, and the 
sorority or fraternity with the 
highest percentage will also re- 
ceive a trophy. Percentages will 
be figured on a basis of a one dol- 
lar contribution.

Engineering Education 
Is Dedication Topic 



UM Veterans 
To Get Checks 
BeforeDec. 30 

The rumor that veteran students 
at the university enrolled under the 
Korean Bill will not receive their 
checks until December 20 is un- 
founded, according to George Em- 
ery of the Placement Bureau. 

Mr. Emery said that veterans 
whose eligibility papers were in 
order at registration time should 
receive their checks between now 
and November 20. But, he con- 
tinued, veterans who filed for edu- 
cational benefits with the Veter- 
ans Administration after having 
been accepted for admission to the 
university this fall probably will 
not receive their first checks until 
December 20. 

Are Speedily Processed 

He said that the Educational 
Benefits Section of the Veterans 
Administration has been process- 
ing an "unprecedent influx" of 
award letters since September. 
These forms, he explained, have 
been going directly to the Finance

A demand for greater efficiency 
in the country's engineering edu- 
cational system was made by May- 
nard M. Boring, consultant for en- 
gineering manpower to the Gener- 
al Electric Co., on Saturday. 

Boring spoke at dedication ex- 
ercises for the university's new 
$1,350,000 engineering building. 

Many Engineers Needed 
The G.E. consultant, who is also 
president of the American Society 
of Electrical Engineers, said that 
Pointing out that only one-half 
of engineering freshmen go on to 
graduate from college, and that 
only one-half of the non-graduates 
fail through scholastic difficulties, 
Boring said, "Many of the fail- 
ures are due to loss of interest, 
financial and other reasons that 
might be controlled." 

Much can be done with persons 
who fall into this group, he 
pointed out, and added, "we may 
well find some very highly quali- 
fied individuals" among them.

additional 22,000 civil engineers in 
the next 10 years. 

"The advent of automation re- 
quire additional large numbers," 
he said. "Change-overs developing 
from the use of atomic energy and 
other technological developments

WE WANT MORE 

Without the aid and approval of members 
of the faculty, extra-curricular activities at 
the U. of M. cannot prove to be too success- 
ful. Certain outstanding faculty members 
donate their time willingly to student affairs 
and are recognized by the student body as 
wonderful individuals. To this small seg- 
ment of the faculty these remarks do not 
apply, but rather we would like to speak to 
that large percentage of the faculty who feel 
that their work is done when they leave a 
classroom. Unfortunately for the campus, 
these people refuse their active participation 
in campus affairs. We do not condemn them 
for this, for in many instances we feel that 
nothing could be gained by an unwilling 
group. 

However we feel that every person on this 
campus should support an organization if 
not participation-wise than at least money- 
wise. Illustrating with the case of Ya-Hoo, 
we find that the students have already 
bought their copies out of their student tax. 
The job now was to sell members of the fa- 
culty, and what a problem this turned out to 
be. One department on campus bought one 
copy among eleven individuals approached. 

More often the case proved to be a cold 
stare and a polite "No." We know that facul- 
ty members are underpaid, but we did not 
know that seventy cents was such a hardship 
to contribute to a student endeavor. The only 
solution to the problem seems to be for each 
faculty member to decide whether or not he 
or she is fulfilling all their obligations as a 
teacher. C.F.L. 



And More And More! 

Progress is definitely in the wind. We 
see new buildings going up; we hear new 
speakers; we have buildings dedicated by 
famous men; we hear of a master plan of 
the university ; we have letters to the editor. 

And despite all this, how farther ahead 
are we really? 

We speak of the great university we have 
and the even greater one we are going to 
have. Every spring we hear about the latest 
methods for cutting enrollment so that the 
quality will be able to expand as well as the 
quantity. We have higher scholastic aver- 
ages required ; we have a new and more pro- 
gressive marking system. 

We have construction, we have plans, but 
do we have the spirit? 

If we do, and sometimes this is doubtful, 
it is the best-hidden and most latent quality 
in the collegiate world. Let's not be afraid 
to show that we have something to be proud 
of and that we are proud of what we have.

This Is The Third Year; 
And Still Going Strong 

by Evelyn Cohen 

You are in Paris, you are enthralled with the 
scenery, you are enchanted with the music. You 
feel yourself a part of the love story unfolding be- 
fore you. But then you remember you are only a 
part of the audience viewing Puccini's La Boheme 
at the Amherst Town Hall. 

The Amherst Community Opera, better known 
as AMCOP, has come a long way since April, 1953, 
when the company was formed after a successful 
performance at the university called "Operation 
Opera," in which local singers coached by Mrs. 
Joseph Contino presented scenes from Aida and 
La Boheme. 

It was following this that a small group of 
townspeople under the leadership of Mrs. Contino 
drew up plans for the formation of the company. 
The response to their productions of Mascagni's 
C.avulleria Rusticana and to Verdi's La Traviata was 
astounding. There was enthusiastic praise from 
critics and audiences everywhere. Every perfor- 
mance was a sell-out. 

Approximately 110 men, women and children 
work fervently on each production. The principal 
roles, chorus, orchestra and the behind-the-scenes 
workers are recruited from the immediate area. 

We find people from all walks of life working 
together in a congenial group for the purpose of 
producing grand opera. 

There are faculty and staff members from all 
fours of the area colleges. These combine with 
secretaries, machinists, laborers, factory workers, 
teachers and reporters to make each show better 
than the preceding on 2. 

The cast of La Boheme is as follows: Mimi — Anne 
McLoone, head secretary of the chemistry depart- 
ment, Amherst College; Rudolf o — Rene Norman 
Moreau, produce distributor; Musetta — Dorothy 
Feldman, faculty wife, UM; Marcello — George King, 
works manager in a Buxton factory; Collins — An- 
thony Mascaro, carpenter; Schaunard — Leon Barron, 
assistant professor of English, UM; Benoit — Marvin 
Bryan, machinist; Parpignol — Ben Drabeck, grad 
student, UM. 

Participation in various phases of production in- 
clude .30 in the orchestra, .30 backstage, eight in the 
main roles, and 25 adults and children in the chorus. 

Six boys from the university drill team — Paul 
Baldasari, John Golda, Philip Kuzmeski, Paul Mc- 
Eachern, Mark Rand, and Paul Signet — were seen 
doing their or.-stage routine during rehearsals. All 
comments made were highly favorable. 

Dr. Feldman, the psych prof, never told his stu- 
dents what a beautiful voire his wife has. We are 
certain his ticket for a front row seat was pur- 
chased far in advance. 

Another fellow, a UM grad student, was noticed 
during rehearsals doing many diversified jobs. If a 
pianist was needed, he was summoned. If a synop- 
sis of the opera was required, he composed it. Pub- 
licity is under his direction. He is also Parpignol in 
the opera; he is Ben Drabeck. 

University personnel serving as committee heads 
for this production are as follows: Joseph Contino, 
music department, orchestra manager; Henry Peirce, 
speech, technical adviser; Mrs. James Burke, wife 
of the secretary of the university, properties; and 
Ben Drabeck, grad student, publicity. 

Much of thp rredit goes to Mrs. Contino, the 
founder, musical director and president of AMCOP. 
Besides all her activities within the group she is a 
housewife and the mother of three. 



Political Potpourri: 

Committee Action Again! 



us, a deep, rumbling horn resembling a sea-sick 
fog horn from the general direction of town. Hav- 
ing heard this ominous sound before, we searched 
the horizon for smoke. 

We saw the girls running from the building with 
their arms full of papers and the like; we asked one 
<>f them what was going on and she hurriedly ex- 
plained, "I was typing when smoke appeared from 
everywhere at once." 

The smoke was plainly visible now as it poured 
through every crevice around the roof. Racing 
around to the rear of the building, we saw the 
flames as they danced around the oval frame of the 
attic window. 

The fire engines were arriving — one — two — 
three — and the sound of more on the way was 
heard in the distance. 

Then the smoke thickened and settled on the 
ground; the crowd scattered in all directions; the 
building and the engines faded from view. Only 
the thick billowing smoke which rose slowly and 
wandered about aimlessly could be seen in the wind- 
less evening. 

"What a time for a football rally!" came one 
comment through the air, but it fell on deaf ears as 
the eyes of the onlookers pierced the choking smoke 
to glimpse one of man's most destructive enemies 
—fire. 



by Micki 

The chairs in Room 4, Skinner 
Hall, were warmed for three hours 
last Tuesday night as members of 
the student government listened to 
each other haggle over committee 
appointments and debate motions. 

From 7 p.m. until after 10 p.m. 
they sat, and as far as observed 
only one senator got tired and left. 
Anyone who has attended meetings 
in previous years can remember 
when sighs of restlessness began 
when meetings threatened to run 
past one hour. This year's sena- 
tors are commendably interested 
and patient although by 9:45 tem- 
pers and dispositions were not at 
their best. 

The slate of chairman, as finally 
approved, shows two changes 
which came about after lengthy 
discussion. John Rosenberg was 
not approved for elections chair- 
man and Larry Parrish was swept 
in as his replacement. Later, when 
Micky Daniels was not approved 
for constitution chairman on 
grounds of senate inexperience, 
Rosenberg received this position. 
The guess would be that both Ros- 
enberg and Parrish, members of 
the junior class, will attempt to 
prove their abilities by leading 
these committees in commendable 
activity. 



Marcucci 

By an involved argument of pro- 
cedure and privilege John Chaffee 
was appointed to the Finance 
Committee although George Cole 
had previously refused to agree to 
Roger Babb's request that Chaffee 
b* 1 appointed to his committee. 
Here is another committee which, 
due to its rather conglomerate 
membership, should come up with 
some interesting and well-debated 
decisions. 

Jonathan (Sam) Snead has de- 
clined his appointment to the 
buildings and grounds chairman- 
ship. The positions may go to Dick 
Keogh. 

Some valuable senate time was 
saved due to the publishing of the 
agenda in the Collegian. Action 
was taken on two motions before 
Tuesday's meeting. Publicity is 
paying off. 

Tonight's meeting will be com- 
paratively short — everybody's go- 
ing to "Faculty Frantics" — al- 
though debate on such motions as 
s33, requiring that male senators 
have a scholastic average require- 
ment and s35 asking for $126 for 
Friday meals for the band, Pre- 
cisionettes, and cheerleaders on 
their New Hampshire trip may de- 
lay adjournment. 



The Mail Pouch 



The Fire... 

To the Editor: 

Quick action and close coopera- 
tion, keynotes of campus communi- 
cations, paid dividends last Friday 
night as members of the Collegian 
and WMUA staffs swung into op- 
eration to provide complete cover- 
age of the Hatch Laboratory fire. 

Richie Robertson, Collegian pho- 
tographer, having defied the law 
of gravity and dropped up to the 
fifth floor studios of WMUA, cam- 
era and all, was the first to realize 
that the fire engines were on cam- 
pus. Smoke rising over Bowker 
Auditorium was evidence enough 
to those present that a good size 
fire was in progress. In the hours 
that followed, both communications 
staffs covered the event as none 
has been bandied previously. 

While Robertson was driven to 
the fire via Butterfield for more 
film by Charles Wissenbach, sta- 
tion manager, Larry Parrish 
headed a WMUA remote broadcast 
crew riding to the scene. Within 
moments after their arrival, the 
radio audience had first news of 
the fire and pictures were taken, 
some of which were snatched up 
by a regional newspaper. 

As the fire progressed, WMUA 
broadcast live direct accounts from 
the rear of Stockhridge Hall and 
concluded with an interview with 
Harold Washburn, a member of 
the U. of M. Volunteer Fire De- 
partment. Washburn was one of 
many who responded to give aid to 
the town of Amherst fire com- 
pany. 

The events of Friday night were 
outstanding examples of the quick 
acting cover- . this campus en- 
joys through the media of campus 
communications.

...the Rally... 

To the Editor: 

Two hundred feet running fran- 
tically from one end of the cam- 
pus, from Alumni Field to Mem 
Hall to the Commons, Greenough, 
or a fraternity or sorority house, 
and finally to Butterfield. One hun- 
dred quick changes from casual 
class attire to maroon and white or 



charcoal flannel and white uni- 
forms. All within sixty minutes. 

At six o'clock on the Friday 
evening before a rally everything 
goes snafu at Alumni Field. 50 
band members and 50 Drill Team 
members rush to Mem Hall and 
then to eat and change in order to 
be at Butterfield by seven o'clock 
for the start of the parade. 

It is cold and fingers are numb 
and teeth are chattering. The 
march around the campus starts. 
The warmth of the dorms looks 
inviting but the march continues 
and those enjoying the warmth of 
the dorms continue to enjoy it. 
The march ends at Mem Hall with 
fewer than it started with. 

Someone tells a few jokes; we 
hear how tremendous the team is; 
Sherry Richards leads a few 
cheers; and we play the "Fight 
Song." We go home wondering if 
it is worth it all. The band and 
the drill team already have the 
spirit. They must or they wouldn't 
rehearse six or more hours a week 
and go to the game every Satur- 
day rain, shine, sleet, flood or 
snow and yell themselves hoarse. 
A rally for these one hundred 
people is purposeless. 

Do you blame them for not 
wanting to participate especially 
when they were not properly noti- 
fied? The Handbook cannot be ac- 
cepted as official as it is always 
subject to change. It also takes 
time to notify the members of the 
participating organizations.

To the editor: 

On Sunday, October 30, between 
noon and 2 pjn. someone "bor- 
rowed" the wet wash of senate 
president George Cole from the 
Bendix in the Chadboume laundry 
room. 

In an effort to help solve this 
heinous crime, the Students for 
Keogh Committee herehy offers a 
reward of one gallon of hard cider 
for the apprehension of the culprit 
and the return of Mr. Cole's wet 
wash.

STOCKBRIDGE NEWS 



Important To All Freshmen 

All freshmen students should fill 
out Placement Blanks which should 
be picked up at South College im- 
mediately! 



Stockbridge Alumni 

The Alumni of Stockbridge held 
a reunion Saturday, October 22 in 
the Westboro Town Hall. 177 lis- 
tened attentively to Provost Mc- 
Cune who was guest speaker. 



Dear Stockbridge, 

This year Stockbridge will again 
display tremendous spirit and their 
belief in a worthy cause when we 
assist in pushing the Campus Chest 
Drive to the top. Once again the 
Stockbridge brand of spirit will 
prove itself, and this time for the 
benefit of a very worthy cause. 

There is mo doubt that this year, 
as in the past, the Stockbridge men 
and women will give their all, in 
an effort to help those less fortun- 
ate than themselves. 

So let's show 'em how we stand. 
The drive needs at least $1.00 per 
person from both the dorms and 
frata. 

Remember, Tuesday, Wednesday, 
or Thursday you will be requested 
by one of your classmates to give. 
"Give 'til it helps." 

Sincerely, 
Fred Wall 



es resulted. 

Prior to the campaigning, senior 
class president, Fred Wall made 
mention of the Campus Chest 
Drive. All etudents are urged to 
"give till it helps!" 

The possibility of a motorcade 
to the Mount Hermon game on 
Nov. 12 was suggested. Since this 
is a long weekend, there may not 
be enough students on campus to 
have an effective motorcade. The 
full cooperation of the student 
body will be necessary to make this 
event 'a success. It is hoped that as 
many as possible will be on hand 
to support the team. 



Student Council 

The third Student Council meet- 
ing of the year was held Thursday, 
Oct. 27, in room 218 Stockbridge 
Hall. 

The Agenda was set for next 
week when Director Jeffreys will 
address the Student Council. 



On Wednesday, October 26, the 
Arboriculture Club held its first 
formal meeting in French Hall. 
Karl Amalia, owner of the Amalia 
Tree Company of Manchester, 
Massachusetts, spoke on, "What the 
Tree Professions Expects of Grad- 
uate"/' Refreshments brought a 
fitting climax to an enjoyable eve- 
ning. 



ATG held another great party 
last Saturday night. Goblins and 
ghosts were present as well as a 
number of other hilarious costumes 
such as the football player and 
cheerleader in reverse. 

Dancing, games, and costume 
judging were the highlights of the 
evening. 

Chaperones were Dr. and Mrs. 
Eliot Roberts, Prof, and Mrs. Paul 
Procopio, and Prof, and Mrs. John 
Francis. 



A I Is Prexy 

After a week of active cam- 
paigning the freshman class held 
its election in the recreation room 
in Middlesex dormitory. 

When the votes had been 
counted, it was found that Al Wil- 
kinson won the presidency with 
64 votes, Dick Salo, veep, received 
38 votes, Judy Burgess was elected 
secretary with 110 votes, and Bob 
Glover became treasurer with 74 
votes. 

Those running for offices were: 
Al Wilkinson, Tom Buckly, James 
Cronin, Larry Sparks, and Ralph 
Haley for president; Dick Salo, 
John Fiorini, Dan Hamilton, and 
Josh Fleming for vice president; 
Judy Burgess and Frank Mazzei 
for secretary; Bob Glover, Barry 
Howland, Don Foubert, and Don 
Kulacz for treasurer. During the 
campaign speeches, Tom Buckly 
decided to back Al Wilkinson and 
Don Kulacz gave his support to 
Barry Howland. 

At a meeting of all Stockbridge 
class officers held last Thursday 
night, the freshmen learned the 
duties and responsibilities of their 
jobs. Fred Wall and the other sen- 
iors explained some of last year's 
accomplishments and gave helpful 
suggestions to the newcomers. 

The freshmen officers will be 
sworn into office this evening at 
their first Student Council meet- 
ing. 



Guest Speakers Mather, Sieling 
Highlight Dairy Club Breakfast 



The second annual Dairy Alum- 
ni Club Breakfast was held Oct. 
29 at the Dinning Commons. 

Co-Presidents Charles Johnson 
and Jerry Donovan were M.C.'s. 
The club heard as guest speaker, 
President Mather, who spoke on 
the future of the University and 
told the alumni about the "FlM 
dom Bill" now before the legisla- 
ture. 

Director Fred P. Jeffrey, spoke 
briefly on the futme of the Dairy 
Industry and Dean Sieling dis- 
cussed the future of Stockbridge 
and the Dairy Club. 

Other important speakers were 
Professor W. H. Tayne, head of 
the Agricultural Engineering 
Dept. of Dairy and Animal Sci- 
ence, who spoke on the plans for 
remodeling Flint Lab. and other 
U. Buildings. Also present were 
Alan Turner, representing the 
Animal Husbandry club, and Sec- 
retary Robert Leavitt, represent- 



ing the Alumni Association. 

After an enjoyable breakfast, 
Co-President Charles Johnson ex- 
plained the plans to raise money 
for a Memorial Plaque in honor 
of Dr. Horace Nelson. 

The alumni raised 54 dollars 
towards the estimated $65.00. This 
Plaque is to be placed in the Flint 
Laboratory. Dr. Nelson was Head 
of the Department of Dairy Re- 
search. 

U Alumnus Receives Award 

Each year the Club elects an 
Honorary Member. Francis E. 
Jackman was this year's choice. He 
is an alumnus of the University, a 
dairy major, and active in the 
dairy business. Mr. Jackman was 
presented the Honorary Certificate 
and an inscribed football from the 
game with Tufts in 1919, in which 
he starred as a halfback. 

This football was donated with 
compliments from the Phys. Ed. 
Department.

200 Freshmen 
Attend Social 
Last Sunday 

Nearly 200 freshman girls and 
over 80 upperclass sorority mem- 
bers braved Sunday afternoon's 
showers to attend a joint sorority 
rushing tea sponsored by the Pan- 
hellenic council. 

Designed as a preliminary to so- 
rority round robins, the tea was 
termed "a huge success" by San- 
dra Kelley, chairman of the affair. 



"The ice has been broken," she 
said. 

Emphasized Unity 

An innovation in rushing pro- 
cedures this year, the event was 
intended to emphasize the unity 
among sororities, according to 
Mary Lou Parker, publicity chair- 
man for Panhellenic. 

I '.an Helen Curtis and house- 
mothers of the women's dorms 
were guests at the tea. Ten girls 
from each sorority and fourteen 
Panhellenic members also at- 
tended. 

Members of Maroon Key assis- 
ted by setting up tables before the 
event. Cake and coffee were served. 




On Campus 



with 

Maxfihulman 




(Author of "Barefoot Boy With Chctk," O.U.) 



STRIKE UP THE BAND! 

Learning the words of all the latest popular songs— as anyone 
mu&t who wants to amount to anything on campus — becomes 
more and more difficult. Take last night. I had the radio on 
for no more than five minutes, and in that time heard two brand 
spanking new songs— a jump tune called Rock With Me, Hymie 
and a hillbilly ballad called They're Hanging Ralph T. Sigafoos 
at Cock-crow. 

And that's the way it goes. New tunes are absolutely flooding 
the market. No wonder you're having trouble memorizing all 
the iyrics. 

But you don't have to be dull about it. I mean, when a song is 
playing and you don't know the lyrics, don't just stand there 
singing dum, dum, de, dum or la, la, la or voom voom. That is 
very dull. Pick more interesting syllables-like slimp gans or 
kretch dinkle or mlath roke. 

Take, for instance, That Old Black Magic. Let's say you 
forgot some of the lyrics. Try singing this : 

That old kretch dinkle 

Has me in its mlath. 

That old kretch dinkle, 

That I slimp so gans. 

Those icy dinkles 

Running down my slimp. 

That old kretch dinkle 

When your roke meets mine . . . etc. 
See? Interesting? What did I tell you? 

But knowing the lyrics-or interesting substitutes— is not nearly 
enough. To really rate on campus, you must also be acquainted 
with odd and interesting facts about the composers. For example: 

1. Irving Berlin's name spelled backwards is Gnivri Nilreb. 

2. Rodgers and Hammerstein can only write music while 
whitewashing a fence. 

8. Ludwig von Beethoven's hobby was collecting cold sores. 

4. One of our greatest songs was written because the wife 
of an impecunious composer came home one afternoon with a 
canteloupe and a dog named Lassie. "Why did you bring home a 







*• Gfe £tt&fa/^M£&J<&rrU>&w/&4ncf4dbejg0r?& 



canteloupe and a dog named Lassie?" said the composer to his 
wife. "For the baby," she replied. The composer grew angry. 
"Here we are flat broke," he cried, "and you come home with 
a melon for the baby, a collie for 'he baby !" Suddenly, struck by 
an inspiration, he rushed to t_ e piano and wrote Melancholy 
Baby. 

5. Cole Porter writes all his songs with a popsicle stick on 
the side of a horse. 

6. Hoagy Carmichael's hobby is spelling Irving Berlin's name 
backwards. 

And what does the true music lover smoke? Why, Philip Morris, 
of corris ! Why? Because Philip Morris is a song of a cigarette— 
a veritable symphony, a melody serene, a tone poem, a cantata, 
a lied, a chansonette, a fugue of one gentle puff upon another, 
allegro yet dolce, lively, mild, harmonious. 

That's Why. ©M.i Bhulmtn. 1*55

Marriage Is 
ThemeofTa Ik 

"Marriage" will be the subject 
of Rev. John C. Knott's address to 
the Newman Club tomorrow night. 
He will begin by taking questions 
directly from the floor and discus- 
sing them in his talk. 

Father Knott is the director of 
the Cana Conference movement in 
the Archdiocese of Hartford, Conn. 
He is also the director of the 
Marriage and Family Apostolate 
in Hartford. He has received an 
M.A. in Sociology at Catholic Uni- 
versity, majoring in Marriage and 
Family Life. Before that, he saw 
service as a Navy Chaplain. 

Offers Various Programs 

Included in the programs which 
he offers are: the Cana Conference 
for married couples; Pre-Cana 
Conferences for engaged couples; 
and a combination Tri-Une and 
Cana Conference for high school 
students and parents. 

Father Knott has spoken to the 
club several times in the past, and 
has been a popular speaker. The 
meeting will be held at the Com- 
mons at 7:30 tomorrow evening.

Nearly half of the payments 
which the Veterans Administration 
has had to process has come from 
schools where students were en- 
rolled prior to the enrollment date 
at the university, he said. 

Mr. Emery concluded with the 
statement that the Veterans Ad- 
ministration "will no doubt make 
every effort, as it did last year, to 
insure that veteran students at the 
university will receive at least one 
check prior to the Christmas holi- 
day."

The forms for the IFC Scholar- 
ship are available in the Dean of 
Men's office. Any university stu- 
dent who is a member of a fra- 
ternity, who is taking a full sched- 
ule of courses, and who is in good 
standing may apply for this schol- 
arship. The scholarship will be 
awarded at the University Honors 
Convocation in the Spring. 

Fraternities are supporting the 
Campus Chest again this year. A 
trophy will be awarded to the fra- 
ternity having the highest percen- 
tage of men living in the house 
contributing. The IFC feels that 
this worthy cause deserves the 
support of everyone. 

Theme Parties 

Four theme parties added to the 
weekend's excitement. AGR with 
their Farmer's Frolic and QTV 
and TC's Pajama Party dominated 
North Pleasant Street's accivity. 
Down at Sunset 136, AEPi held 
a Rock 'n Roll Party. 

Community buying will be dis- 
cussed as one of the main issues 
of the next IFC meeting. The IFC 
instituted the idea of communal 
buying among the fraternities 
to purchase certain commodities 
and services at the IFC Workshop 
held at the beginning of the se- 
mester. 

The next meeting of the IFC

group that attended a luncheon in 
his honor at the University of Mas- 
sachusetts dining commons Satur- 
day noon. 

"We have made good progress 
in agricultural production and will 
make more," he contended. Grain 
production, which has advanced at 
a general rate of two bushels per 
acre per hundred years has ad- 
vanced eight bushels per acre over 
the last 15 years. Problems facing 
the continued improvement of pro- 
duction include the exodus of 
skilled workers from the farm and 
the encroachment of housing devel- 
opments in better farm areas. This 
is being overcome to some extend 
by the reclamation, but mainly by 
continuing scientific research and 
farm mechanization. 

Will Remain Market 

Britain will remain a large mar- 
ket for foodstuffs, Fletcher-Vane 
said, because of its large poula- 
tion in small area. His country 
has about one-half acre of arable 
land per capita compared to about 
4% for the United States. 

Also British farming is mainly 
glassland farming and food and 
feed grains must be imported. The 
land, he said, is of good average 
quality. Unlike American agricul- 
ture, the danger of drought is 
small. The chief farming hazard 
is too much water. 

British agriculture of todfty, he 
pointed out, emerged from the 
manorial system of tenure unlike 
American farming which grew up 
on new land. The British farmer 
developed more than the peasant 
but low returns to capital kept him 
from becoming as mechanized as 
his American counterpart. His 
production per man is fourth in 
the world and his production per 
acre is also fourth. 

British agriculture will continue 
to emphasize quality. Fletcher- 
Vane added. It has in the past 
provided foundation stock for 
many high quality livestock breeds. 

Program Ncessary 

The goal of his nation's agri- 
cultural program is not self-suffic- 
iency but rather that it produce a 
much gerater portion of its food 
than it has in the last century. The 
need for such a program was felt 
severly during the two world wars. 
It is on these experiences that the 
present support, reclamation, fer- 
tility and welfare programs are 
based, he said.

Backfield Shines in 54-15 UM Victory Over Vt. 



Barous, Ingram Score Twice To Pace 
UMass Attack; UVM's Beck Sidelined 

The explosive UMass backs unleashed a terrific offense 
against the Eddie Beck-less Vermont Catamounts Saturday, 
and emerged with a 54-15 triumph— the most one-sided win 
in the four year regime of Coach Charlie O'Rourke. 

Twenty points in the third period salted the game away 
for the Redmen who led, 20-7, going into this decisive period. 
Roger Barous, playing as fine a 



BANG! 



rlffl" BQOWff 



game as he has ever played as a 
Redman, tallied twice for the win- 
ners, as did Dave Ingram, the 
glue-fingered end. 

The UMass offense shined in the 
first half in the person of the 
starting quartet which scored three 
times against a fresh Vermont 
club. The second and third back- 
fields recorded 34 points against 
the tir'd ol' Catamounts in the sec- 
ond half. 

Redmen Score at 7 :54 

Seven minutes and 54 seconds 
of the game had elapsed before 
UM got its first touchdown. This 
first score was set up by a perfect 
coffin corner punt by quarterback 
Tom Whalen. The Cats, operating 
from their own one yard line, 
could kick out only to the 36 and 
the Redmen were on their way. 

The 36 yards were covered in 
five plays with Barous taking the 
ball three times. He scored and 
Charlie Mellen converted to make 

it 7-0. 

A fumble set Vermont up late in 
the first quarter but Dick Wright 
intercepted in the UMass end zone 
to stifle the threat. The Redmen 
took over on their 20, and scored 
six plays. The TD play covered 
70 yards. 

Ingram Fools Defense 
With a second and five, Whalen 
hit Ingram with a pass on the 
left side, and Ingram faked two 
men out and eluded a third as he 
ran 55 yards for the score. It was 
the first touchdown by a UMass 
end this year. 

The most serious Vermont threat 
of the afternoon came next, as the 
Cats took the opening kickoff 78 
yards in 10 plays. Their touch- 
down came when halfback Al Mc- 
Lam made a sweet catch of a pass 
in the end zone with two Redmen 
hanging over his shoulder. 

The winners were mere than 
equal to the task, however, as they 
moved the kickoff 66 yards in four 
plays to score. 

Barous traveled 42 yards on a 
pitchout from Whalen to set the 
score up, and then recorded it on 
a five yard trap play. Mellen con- 
verted to make it 20-7 at halftime. 

After intermission, the Redmen 
struck early and often. After an 
exchange of punts, Mellen went 44 
yards to score on a straight hand- 
off. 

Vermont had a pass intercepted

Booters Lose 
To B'port 4-0 

Four lasl period goals rattled 
'past a weary UMass defense to 
defeat the Redmen soccer team 
Saturday, 4-0, at Bridgeport. 

The bandaged Redmen, still 

I groggy from their bus accident 

i two weeks previous, held the strong 

BPort booters on even terms until 

wear and tear started to tell. Then 

ithe winners, who have won 12 of 

their last 13 games over two years, 

made their attacks pay off. 

Goalie Lee Sutcliffe was fine in 
the nets for the men of temporary 
coach John Suleski. Sutcliffe is re- 
placing injured netminded Chuck 
Niedzwiecki. 

Saturday the booters play at 
Alumni Field against Clark. They 
will be making their first appear- 
ance at home since the bus accident 
early in October. Since the football 
team is on the road, the soccer 
club will be looking for all the fans 
on campus to come out and watch 
them perform. 

They now have a 2-4 record, but 
are favored over Clark. We urge 
the campus to go out and see the 
soccer team in action. 



Ingram's TD% CappyAt QB, Runback Of 
Red's, Feature One-Sided Win Over Cats 



by Barous, who returned to the 
28. A pass to Hal Bowers and a 
pass to Ingram put the ball in the 
end zone for the fifth time. Mellen 
booted the point. 

Just before the end of the third 
session, co-captain Red Johnson 
grabbed a punt, moved to his left 
and outdistanced the entire Ver- 
mont team for a 66- yard touch- 
down run. The Redhead broke out 
of a personal slump with this jaunt 
which was as pretty as any UM 
play all year. 

Touchdown number seven came 
the hard way— on a 90 yard march. 
They covered it in 10 plays includ- 
ing a 33-yard Blume to Johnson 
to McLean split-T pass. Bowers 
carried into the end zone for his 
sixth TD of the year. 



Dave Ingram, who played an- 
other heads up game for UMass, 
had his best scoring day with two 
TD's. He got six points last year 
whtn he stole the ball from Billy 
Pappas of UNH and ambled for a 

score. 

» « m 

The fans, the team, and the 
press were all happy to see Red 
Johnson break loose to sc*>re. The 
Redhead has had tough luck this 
year, with one TD lost when he 
fumbled in the end zone. His punt 
return was a pretty sight. 
* * • 

In the final minutes, Cappy Kidd

bleachers on fourth down to keep

score was then 47-9.

UMass and UConn, literally run 



Barous Cops

Rugged Roger Barous, the hard 
running UMass fullback who has 
finally found himself on the grid-

Wellworth Award. 

Roger has starred in the last 
two UMass football victories 
which have featured explosive 
backfield play. He had a good day 
offensively and defensively at 
Northeastern, but really put on his 
best varsity show Saturday a- 
gainst Vermont. 

Barous was the standout on a 
great freshman team in 1953. He 
looked like the type of runner who 
would break away for long gains 
every Saturday. 

But, as his sophomore year 
proved, he was better as a "short 




man" to pick up that first down 
yai'dage. So he was moved to full- 
back and has defeated some im- 
pressive comptetition to hang on 
to his starting slot. 

Although he has never broken 
away for a real long TD run, 
Roger has scored quite often in 
two years. Saturday he ran hard 
every time he got the ball, and 
scored twice. He holds the distinc- 
tion of being the only Redmen run- 
ner ever to tally against Harvard, 
since he scored twice there in '54 
and once this fall. 

The Wellworth Pharmacy is 
happy to reward Roger with a 
certificate good for a bundle of 
merchandise from the drug store. 
The Friendly Pharmacy also 
wishes the Redmen the best of 
luck in their last two road games. 



away with the contest. The race 
was held at the Penobscot Valley 
Country Club and covered the dis- 
tance from the club house to the 
main road. 

Firlotte's winning time of twenty 
minutes and 19.5 seconds did not 
set any records but was enough to 
give him the margin over UConn's 
Lew Stieglitz. His team mates 
Dan Rearlick and Stan Furrow 
were third and fourth respectively 
and cemented Maine's low point 
total. Law of Maine finished sev- 
enth and Hanson took tenth place 
to give the northern school a mere 
25 points. 

UMass, which dominated the 
cross country field in the years 
1951-52-53 when they took the con- 
ference title three times in a row, 
showed it still had plenty of 
strength. Captains Horn and Lep- 
kowski finished fifth ar ■': sixth and 
might have done betWr if they 
could have found an opening in the 
barricade of elbows and bodies in 
front of them. Tim Flynn came in 
a creditable fifteenth and sopho- 
more Pete Schwartz was right be- 
hind him. Jim Kelly managed to 
grab the twentieth position and 
Carl Baker finished number twenty- 
three. 

The Redmen harriers were hand- 
icapped by the long bus ride to 
Orono and their unfamiliarity with 



the course. Coach Bill Footrick was 
not displeased with the perform- 
ance of his pupils and is setting 
the team's sights for the Connecti- 
cut championship which takes place 
this week.

Aggies Remains Undefeated; 
Fraternities Start Stretch Drive 



by a Staff Reporter 

The Stockbridge Blue Devils re- 
mained in the undefeated ranks last 
Friday as they whipped New 
Hampton for their third victory, 24 
to 6. 

Dick Loynd scored the first 
touchdown for the Blue Devils by 
scampering through the New 
Hampton team for 20 yards. The 
touchdown jaunt was set up by the 
running of John Sears and Bill Ro- 
henhizer. Sears circled his right 
end for the extra point. 

Two safeties were scored by the 
Blue Devils in the second period. 
George Dugas broke through and 
smothered the New Hampton quar- 
terback in the end zone. Near the 
end of the second period the entire 
line engulfed the New Hampton 
left-half for two more points. 
70 Yd. Kickoff Return 

In the third period New Hamp- 
ton scored its only touchdown with 
the righthalf taking the kickoff 
and racing 70 yards for the touch- 
down. 

The second touchdown for the 
Blue Devils came in the third pe- 
riod when John Holmes raced 30 
yards around his left end for the 
score. 

The final scoring of the day came 



when 225 lb. tackle George Dugas 
intercepted a New Hampton pass 
and raced 65 yards for the touch- 
down with four New Hampton 
players bouncing off him. Barry 
Howland kicked the extra point. 
Dugas ended up as the game's 
high scorer with a total of eight 
points, besides playing an outstand- 
ing defensive game on the line. 
Rix Receives Injury 

Due credit must be given to Ro- 
henhizer, Sears, Fiorini, and Loynd 
for the continual yardage they 
gained throughout the game. The 
line also played a fine game as 
they threw New Hampton for loss- 
es all afternoon. A few of the line 
standouts where Co-Capt. Dale 
Freed, Larry Genior, and Bob Tar- 
talis. Co-Capt. Vernon Rix received 
a minor head injury but is expect- 
ed to be ready for the Nichols 
game. 

Nichols Jr. Next Foe 

This Friday the Blue Devils play 
Nichols Junior College at Alumni 
Field in a game which shapes up 
as the toughest of the season for 
the undefeated Blue Devils. 

A sportswriter who writes for 
the Times, Newsweek, and Sports 
Illustrated attended the game as 
Stockbridge goes big time. 

Frats Swing Into Action 



With two weeks of full competi- 
tion under their belts, the Frater- 
nity League swings into full steam 
again tomorrow night in the mad 
dash to the champion's crown. 

In the feature game of last week, 
as far as rivalry is considered, 
AEPi squeaked out an 18-13 victory 
over their arch-rivals from North 
Pleasant St. The big guns for the 
AEPi attack were Neil Feldman, 
who tallied twice for the victors, 
and Dave Kahn, who scored the 
first TD and played a whale of a 
ballgame. 

TEP First and Goal 

For the losers it was Howie For- 
man who was the standout, and his 
play was inspiring, though in a 
losing cause. In passing, it must 
be mentioned that time ran out on 
TEP with the ball on AEPi's one 
yard line. 

Schedule For Week 

The schedule for this week: 
Monday, PMD vs DSC, KS vs AGR, 

AEPi vs SAE, TEP vs PSK. 
Tuesday, TC vs LCA, SPE vs DSC,

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLl EGIAN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER I, 1955 



Cross Country Team Ready 
For Conn. Valley Race Tues. 



Some of the top runners in New 
England will compete in the an- 
nual Connecticut Valley Cross- 
country Championship Run, which 
will be held at the University of 
Vermont today. 

Teams from Springfield College, 
Coast Guard, Massachusetts, Con- 
necticut, Norwich, St. Michael's, 
Castleton Teachers and host Ver- 
mont will take part in the Varsity 
races which are slated for 3 p.m. 
on the UVM course. 

A high-flying crew f ram the Uni- 
versity of Connecticut will be out 
to defend their championship this 
year. The U Conns, paced by Lewis 
Stieglitz, who placed second in the 
Valleys last year, haven't lost a 
race since last year's Yankee Con- 
ference Championships, and the 
Huskies won the New England 
title last fall. 

Alsa expected to be in the thick 
of things are Springfield and Mas- 
sachusetts who placed second and 
third in 1954. Robert Falvo and 
Walter Graham, Springfield's co- 
captains, are pacing the Maroons 
again this year, while UMass. has 
one of the top one-two punches in 



New England circles in Bob Horn, 
who took first place in the race 
last year, and Wilbert Lepkowski, 
who was a close second. 

Neither Vermont nor Coast 
Guard made good showings last 
fall, but both are expected to be 
stronger this year. The Cata- 
mounts lost their top runner, Lar- 
ry Damon, to graduation, but have 
two good racers in Don Grady 
and Ken Wadley. Coast Guard 
should be strengthened by some 
material up from last year's 
strong Freshman team, which did 
well against New England frosh 
entries in 1954. 

Three Vermont colleges which 
have recently entered intercollegi- 
ate cross-country competition will 
be represented for the first time 
this year. Teams from Norwich, 
St. Michael's and Castleton State 
Teachers wiil be out to take the 
title in their first try. 

Four teams will have Freshman 
entries battling for the Connecti- 
cut Valley Freshman Champion- 
ship. Massachusetts, Vermont, 
Coast Guard and Springfield will 
send frosh combines into action.

Redmen for do 
Aho Leads Stubby 

by Jack Chevalier 

The day that two dozen UMass 
basketeers have looked forward to 
is here. Today is November one, 
and the university basketball team 
begins drills for the 1955-56 sea- 
son at the Cage this afternoon. 

Coach Bob Curran and Captain 
Paul Aho will lead the Redmen 
dribblers this winter, as they at- 
tempt to better last year's 10-14 
mark. 

There is no question as to the 
biggest Redmen weakness. It's 
height. UMass has no player over 
6'3" tall, and the next month will 
be spent trying to form an attack 
which will be effective without that 
tall man which is so prevalent in 
basketball circles today. 
Fine Small Unit 

Coach Curran has a fine senior 
squad this year — one that would 
be among the New England leaders 
if it had a 6'6" center or a reason- 
able facsimile. In fact, the Redmen 
could probably qualify as the sec- 
tion's best little team, and probably 
one of the country's top stubby 
quintets. 

vyaptaui Paul Aho, along with 
Dick Eid, Buddy Frye, and Johnny 
Skypeck, are seniors and three year 
veterans of UM basketball wars. 
x~ansfer students George Burke 
and Dave Bartley are seniors, and 
one year varsity veterans. 

The junior class boasts of Jack 
Foley, a starting hoopster, and 
John Edgar, Mel Foster, and Tony 
Pompeo who will be battling top 
berths. 

Sophomores and newcomers to 
the Redmen brigade include Skip 
Duprey, Don Akerson, Paul Kollios, 
Art Andrews, Bill Crotty, Dickie 
Thompson, and George Morin. 

This month will be dedicated to 
firniring out a lineup which will 
combat its lack of height with 
speed and accuracy. 

Swish Kids Return 

George "Trigger" Burke and 
Jack Foley, the Swish Kids who 
averaged 50 points per game in the 
last third of the 1954-55 season, 
are good bets for starting posts. 
Burke led the team in scoring, 
was second in the Yankee Confer- 
ence, and was mentioned on sev- 
eral "all-something" teams. 

Coach Curran has not disclosed 
whether he intends to switch one of 
his forwards or guards to center, 
or whether he is going to train a 
new man to play the pivot. 
Foley, Aho at Center? 

A possible move would be to 
switch Foley or Aho to center, and 
use veterans Burke, Eid, and Sky- 
prik in the lineup with them. Or 
the coach would keep Eid and Aho 
at forwards, Foley and Burke at 
guards, and break in a new center 
from the group of Foster, Erye, or 
Crotty. 

Dave Bartly, a short tricky 
guard, will probably be the team's 
number six man. Another leading 
nserve will be Edgar, who played 
good ball last year before being 
hurt. 

Among the sophs, Akerson, Kol- 
lios, and Duprey have the best 
chances to see a lot of action. Aker- 
son is a sharp shooting forward, 
while Duprey and Kollios are ideal 
UMass basketball players — short, 
fast, and guards. 

The Redmen have scheduled 25 
contests this winter, including the 
three -day Christmas tourney at 
Colby. Contests with Williams, 
Holy Cross, and UConn highlight 
the slate, which also shows a 
home and home series with Spring- 
field College.

'South Pacific' Cast Announced 
Sophomore, Senior Win Leads 

Alviani Culls Best Singing Actors From Chorale 



HORT SHOW OPENS TODAY 
WITH AG, FLORAL EXHIBITS 



The Operetta Guild has re- 
leased the following castings for 
their production of South Pacific 
next spring. 

Ensign Nellie Forbush will be 
portrayed by a sophomore, Joan 
Bernstein, and Emile de Becque 
by a senior, William Danaher. 
Deidre MacLeod, a sophomore, will 
play Bloody Mary, and a junior, 
Richard Can-oil, Luther Billis. 

Lt. Joseph Cable, USMC, will 
be played by freshman Norman 
Boucher, and Capt- George Brack- 
ett, USN, by a senior, David 
Wadsworth. Edward Levine and 
Joyce Duval, both seniors, will 
play Cmdr. William Harbison, 
USN, and Liat, respectively. 
Henry will be played by Donald 
Gagnon, a freshman. 

Mr. Alviani stated that he was 
very impressed with the amount 
of talent shown in the tryouts this 
year. He obseiwed that this was 
the best level in experience he had 
ever seen and emphasized that the 
fact that many did not receive 
parts is by no means a reflection 
on their ability. 

He also stated that it was nec- 
essary to pick singing actors for 
this production and that he had 
endeavored to choose the people 
who synthesized the two talents 
best. 

The remainder of the cast will 
be announced at a later date. 



Keough Appointed 
To Head Committee 

Richard Keogh, who proposed 
half of the 12 motions passed by 
the senate Tuesday, replaced 
Jonathan Snead as chairman of 
the buildings and grounds com- 
mittee. 

Snead, absent at the senate 
meeting when committees and 
their chairmen were voted on, 
served as chairman of buildings 
and grounds last year but declined 
his reappointment. 

One of Keogh's six motions 
which passed was a constitutional 
amendment. It states that no de- 
cision may be reached by Men's 
Judiciary unless four of the five 
man group have been present to 
hear all of the evidence of the 
case. The only senator opposed 
was Ruth Kirk. 

Minimum Average Considered 

Another Keogh motion which 
will allow the expenditure of $10 
to buy 100 copies of the booklet 
"Rules of Order" from the U.S. 
National Student Association was 
passed although the Senate had 
just voted not to join the associa- 
tion. 

Next week, Men's Affairs com- 
mittee will discuss the feasibility 
of requiring men to have a certain 
standard average to be able to run 
for senate. A motion to investigate 
such a move was submitted by 
Deidre MacLeod and amended by 
John Chaffee. 

Two motions were referred to 
the finance committee. Keogh re- 
quested the appropriation of $126 
to the band, cheerleaders, and 
drill team for one meal on the 
UNH trip. Babb asked that $♦*. B 
be allocated to students attending 
a student union conference at the 
University of Rhode Island.

The pictures of Johnny and the five candidates, taken all over 
campus, will be submitted to the New York Philip Morris Advertising

Kennedy Speaks To Capacity 
Bowker Audience Last Wed. 



The United States must meet 
the challenge of communism in 
small countries by military guar- 
antees, technical assistance, im- 
provement of our own class struc- 
ture, and a firm stand against 
colonization. 

These ideas were expressed by 
Senator John F. Kennedy, speak- 
ing before a capacity audience in 
Bowker Aud. Wednesday after- 
noon. His subject was "Problems 
of Current Foreign Policy." 
Task of U.S. Is Enormous 

The Massachusetts senator 
stressed the enormity of the task 
which we must accomplish: that of 
combining many dissimilar coun- 
tries into one great alliance with 
communist forces on all sides. 

Commenting on NATO, he stated 
that it had not developed militar- 
ily, but had served its purpose 
of keeping western Europe free. 
However, the withdrawal of French 
troops from the NATO structure, 
and the hostility between Greece 
and Turkey are weak points in our 
defenses. 

Use of War Untnecessary 

"It is the military capacity to 
wage war that can make its use 
unnecessary," he said, urging the 
continuation of the strong Strate- 
gic Air Command barrier against 
communist advance. 

The internal security of our mil- 
itary allies must be of great con- 
cern to us, he added. Italy is now 
in a precarious position holding 
only a narrow internal margin over 
the communists. Poland and other 
countries behind the Iron Curtain 
have been sorely abused, he said 

Religious education has been 
denied in a country whose popula- 
tion is 90'; Catholic. All leaders 
must conform openly to the en- 
forced political line. 

U.S. Should Revoke Policy 

On the subject of French colon- 
ization. Senator Kennedy quoted 
Colonel House, advisor to Presi- 
dent Wilson, who said, "The best 
politics is to do the right thing." 



The right thing in regard to colon- 
ization, he said, is "to stand on 
the principle of eventual indepen- 
dence for all, and to revoke our 
policy of neutrality on this issue." 
In regard to Indo-China, the 
problem at hand is whether the 
scheduled elections will take place 
this summer. These elections are 
provided for in the Geneva agree- 
ments, but neither the United 
States nor Viet Nam signed these 
agreements. 

U.S. Is Stronghold 

It was Senator Kennedy's opin- 
ion that we should guarantee inter- 
vention in case of trouble if the 
elections are not held . This would 
give the people of Indo-China re- 
assurance in their stand against 
the enemy. 

In closing, the senator stated, 
"The United States is the wall 
against which all enemies of the 
monolithic state lean. We hold the 
gate, and where we falter or fail, 
the entire structure of the free 
world is shaken." 



Frosh Skits Will 
Compete Tomorrow 

The freshmen, sparked by the 
Revelers, will entertain the cam- 
pus Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in Bow 
ker Auditorium when the dormi- 
tories will enter tin- annual Intel

"If;" Thatcher, "Memoi ■ies." 

Mr. Vernon Helming, Mrs. I.< 
land Varley, and Miss Vera 
Sickles will judge the presenta- 
tions. 

This year, for the first time, the 
Frosh skits arc under the (tppei 
class direction of the Revelers, 

Dancing at Crabtr-e will follow

The "horticulturalist of the year" will be chosen at the 
opening of the 43rd annual Horticultural Show tonight tin 
the Cage. 

A huge map of the state, symbolizing the theme, "The 
State is our Campus," is the main feature of the show. Next 
to the map is a revolving drum presenting the four benefits 

given to the state by the univer- 
sity. They are instruction, exten- 
sion, research, and control. 

These four phases are carried 
out in the exhibits by students 
from the College of Agriculture 
and Horticulture. 

Other displays include work by 
Smith College, Amherst College 
and Westover Greenhouses. 
Art Exhibit Included 
An added feature of the show 
is an art exhibit located on the 
west balcony. Entries are from 
faculty and students of the uni- 
versity, Amherst College, and lo- 
cal residents. 

The Hort Show is the largest 
student-constructed and staged 
production in the country. The 
student chairman of the 1955 show 
is Stanley Pieczarka, a senior 
olericulture major. 

Show On TV 
A replica of the floor plan and 
some highlights of last year's show 
appeared on television last night 
over channel 22. Pictures of the 
Cage before and after the show 
was set up illustrated the amount 
of work involved in the setting up 
of the exhibits. Three UMass stu- 
dents participated in the program. 
Queen Replaced 
The award of "horticulturalist of 
the year" replaces the traditional 
Horticulture Queen. The award is 
designed to recognize the person

Amcop Show 
'La Boheme ' 
Opens Tonite 

The curtain will rise tonight at 
8:15 on the first of three perform- 
ances of the Amherst Community 
Opera production of Puccini's "La 
Boheme" in the Amherst Town 
Hall. 

UMass staff and student body are 
among the more than 140 partici- 
pating on the project, with several 
university personnel singing lead- 
ing roles or serving as committee 
heads. 

Dorothy Feldman, wife of psy- 
chology professor Dr. Robert Feld- 
man, will sing the leading role of 
Musetta; Leon Barron of the Eng- 
lish department will appear as 
Schaunard; and Ben Drabeck, grad- 
uate student in English, will sing 
Parpignol. Six members of the Fly- 
ing Redmen drill team, led by Mar* 
Rand, will be featured in the Act II 
finale. 

The company was organized three 
years ago by a faculty wife, Mrs. 
Joseph Contino, who serves as mu- 
sical director and president of 
AMCOP. Mrs. Contino is a piano 
teacher to university students. 

Tickets are still available for 
the performance tonight as well as 
those on Saturday and Sunday eve- 
nings. 



MeCune Announces 
Faculty Senate Plan 

One of the results of Phi Beta 
Kappa's refusal to establish a 
chapter at the university is the 
pioposed formation of a faculty 
senate. 

At a faculty meeting on Thurs-

Minds, Teams, Clay 
And A University 

In the past, attempts to build a great 
university, its spirit and prestige have cen- 
tered largely about athletic teams and master 
construction plans. 

These projects aimed at what is still a 
worthy end. But if the designers of this 
school's destinies had inspected other colleges 
built from similar blueprints, they would 
have discovered long ago that the university 
we were building was weak. 

Fortunately, there is now a growing con- 
viction among those connected with this edu- 
cation center that the past plans for build- 
ing a great state university were inadequate 
and incomplete. 

We now realize that athletic teams are 
rather risky ventures in which to set all 
one's hopes for school spirit, fame and gifts. 
They bring glory to the school for a few 
years at most; and when they deteriorate, 
both spirit and fame go out the window. 

Likewise with imposing edifices. When 
the buildings and labs lose their shine, we 
lose prospective freshmen to other institu- 
tions who have just purchased the "latest 
and bestest" - - unless we have something 
further to offer. 

That "something" is a superior educa- 
tion. We now know that, to build a great 
state university, its spirit and prestige, we 
must be free to attract inspired teachers and 
inspired students. We must be free to build 
a school of thought and research, in addition 
to teams and a physical plant. Hence the 
run-in with the "clerks" in Boston. Hence 
the higher scholastic averages expected of 
students. 

In the long run, minds, the activity and 
productivity of minds gain for an university 
the larger portion of its veneration, not the 
physical manifestations of this veneration. 
There are numerous places off-campus for 
the cultivating of magnificent bodies and the 
erecting of public memorials. 

One recalls that many of the most ven- 
erated schools of thought and research rose 
and grew in the dust of streets, in lonely 
mountain retreats, in catacombs, and in 
humble kitchens. There is no reason why 
a school of thought and research cannot de- 
velop in the mire of the university - - provid- 
ing that we can free ourselves from the 
mires of Boston, anti-intellectualism, and ex- 
cessive materialism. 

On this campus, the role played by ath- 
letic teams and magnificent buildings in con- 
tributing to the growth of a great state uni- 
versity must be played down; that of mind, 
played up. 

Until inspired education is brought to this 
campus wholesale, we cannot expect spirit, 
prestige and gifts.

Student-Faculty Talks 
Start With Your Name 

Teachers, we have discov- 
ered, are people. They are par- 
ticularly people in their own 
homes. The way to meet 
teachers and to talk with them 
is to meet them where they 
live. 

We've been hearing a lot 
about better student-faculty 
relationships. If students who 
would like to visit profs w< uld 
send their names into the Col- 
legian we'd be able to arrange 
for them to visit and talk with 
interested teachers.

profs at home write us, care of

CURTAIN CALL: Officer Alexander "Red" Blasco.

'Fran tics 9 Wow Huge Crowd 

by Martha Lipchitz 

Tuesday night, our versatile faculty took a barrelful of satirical 
comedy, added a touch of music and a sprinkling of dramatics, and 
came up with a recipe called Faculty Frantics, that dazzled a turnaway 
crowd, and generously padded the bottom of the 1955 Campus Chest. 

So entertaining was their program that we can only add that they 
should stage it every year, or at least three nights every four years. 



Mr. Putala not only wrote a 
good deal of the script and song 
lyrics, but also managed to steal 
just about every scene in which he 
appeared. Those who have met 
with him in Botany courses were 
not in the least surprised with his 
dramatic abilities. When he ex- 
plains the death of a botanical cell, 
man, you have seen a tragic thing. 

Miss Intellectual Spirit, played 
by Mrs. Niedeck, was not recog- 
nized until she became the spirit 
of . . . shall we say . . . feminine 
loveliness. She visited many de- 
partments, trying to "find her- 
self." She ended up in Meta- 
wampe's teepee, much to the pleas- 
ure of Mr. Goldberg. 

Although most of the show was 
well co-ordinated, a few of the

Of Stunts . . . 

To the Editor: 

As if we hadn't bad enough 
rain, but now it pours down upon 
us in sheets of paper! The stunt 
of dropping campaign Ittfloti 
over the campus from an airplane 
Wednesday was one that evidently 
took a lot of students, especially 
freshmen, by surprise. Although 
this method of advertising is not 
entirely new at this university, 
credit must be given to the fresh- 
man presidential candidate who 
used the idea for the coming elec- 
tion. 

I personally know that this cam- 
paign stunt was not an "off-the- 
cuff" plan. It took a week's work 
to design the idea, blueprint the 
plans of execution, and print tlie 
pamphlets. Finally, it took self- 
confidence to brinfr about the ac- 
tual accomplishment. 

Tto most of us, the shower of 
paper we received Wednesday pro- 
bably represents another cheap 



THE MAKE-UP 
AND THE MAKE-BELIEVE 

by Bob Littlewood 

As the houselights dim, and the curtain parts, audience and cast alike take a step 
back in time, groping for the magical world of the theatre. The hush so familiar to 
those on both sides of the curtain line quivers on the edge of another opening night. 

Once again, a glimpse through the perhaps rose-tinted, perhaps misty, perhaps 
stark and cold magnifying lens of the playwright is given to all who sit in hard wooden 
seats of Bowker, or tread her limited awkward creaky stage. These magical moments 
of illusion and excitement have been shared for many years at the university. Their 
nervous treading, the whispered lines, and the silent prayers began here in 1910, when 
the Massachusetts Agriculture College Dramatic Club, later to become the Roister 
Doisters in 1912, was founded. 

These early years were difficult ones for the group. Lack of funds, help, equipment, 
and women made definite limitations on the choice of play. Directed by non-profes- 
sionals, the plays were farces produced in Montague, as no campus facilities were avail- 
able. In 1915, Stockbridge with its notorious Bowker was finished, and the RD's came 
home to stay, 

The size and shape of the stage, the discomfiture 
and lack of visibility of the audience, and the hor- 
rible acoustics were some of the bugaboos that then 
and now hamper any campus production. Scenery 
building and storage was a headache for the first 
production manager, and has been for his long line 
of ill-fated successors. 

For many years scenery was built on the top 
floor and then hopefully navigated down the stairs. 
Lighting, or lack of it, was still another limitation 
sorely felt by a group which hoped to present well- 
balanced, near professional productions. When the 
work shop, a rather small, bam-like firetrap that 
squats rather timidly and apathetically behind 
Stockbridge, was given to the group, a few of the 
limitations were lessened, and the RD's had a home. 

Here, armies of hopeful Thespians have filed 
up the stairway to the lair of the awesome, fearful 
director and his critical crew, to be reviewed. This 
home was no answer, but at least it was a help. 
Many of these early limitations still weight the neck 
in albatross fashion, of the present group. But along 
with these legacies, were the spirit and purpose of 
the original members. These early years formu- 
lated the interest to provide for the student body 
excellent entertainment by the student body for the 
student body. 

In 1920, the RD's had their first professional 
director, the now Doctor Frank Rand, of the English 
department. For 27 years he worked with the club 
striving towards this goal of entertainment and 
culture. The Roister Doisters experimented with 
ideas and new plays, held contests and instituted 
the inter-dass play competitions which should be 
revived this year. In 1947, Mr. Rand retired his 
post to Mr. Arthur Niedeck. The type of play in 
these last eight years has changed slightly; a move 
towards the contemporary was instituted. Plays 
such as James Thurber's The Male Animal, and 
Moss Hart's, Light Up The Sky, were the vehicles 
for the same purpose of high caliber entertainment 
supplied for the students by the students. 

This year, when the new Bowker is opened for 
its first major student production, the curtain will 
rise on the Roister Doister's interpretation of Jean 
Giraudoux's The Madwoman of Chaillnt. Once again 
th~ heady hush will descend to envelop audience 
and cast. Perhaps the spell wiil be aided by a larger, 
more flexible stage, and more comfortable seats; 
but it will not be a new spell. Perhaps the ghost of 
Ralph Roister Doister will be in the audience but 
he will feel at home, and be entertained, as will the 
audience. 

The fabric woven on stage will glitter and gleam 
in the false light of the make believe; gay and pen- 
sive threads will once again flit on this loom of 
magic. Almost tangible, this fllmy cloth will settle 
over the audience to hide the rush of time and hush 
the mutterings of the outside world. The world of 
make-up, and make-believe, will once again replace 
the world of actuality. 



He 



is a cop, 



scenes seemed to be merely "stuck 
in" for the sake of using more ac- 
tors. Grade-A Nutrition did not tie 
in with the story. The Ballad sing- 
er bit was saved only because Mrs. 
Feldman has such a lovely voice. 

The dancing scene of Mrs. Cor- 
nish and Mr. Morrissey brought 
down the house, although his use 
of the red sash looked suspiciously 
like he had just come out of the 
shower, and hadn't quite finished 
the procedure. 

Parts of the Proclamation, given 
by Provost McCune and Dean Ca- 
hill were lost in the general gales 
of laughter it produced. We 
learned that this school was found- 
ed on the Moral Act, and that the 
now enchanting spirit was "too 
sexy for our prexy." Oh? 



propaganda trick; but we must al- 
so think of the abilities this 
"stunt" represents in this particu- 
lar candidate. It is this type of 
person, who can come up with 
original ideas like this and who is 
quick to take advantage of sur- 
rounding facilities, that we need 
in our political offices.

Noble, Whalen To Match 
Wits with Judges' Tosser 

by Jack Chevalier 

An all-Boston College coaching 
staff will lead a Greater Boston 
starting lineup into the Boston 
area Saturday when the University 
of Massachusetts gridmen will play 
a road game at "home" against 
Brandeis at Waltham, starting at 
1:30. 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke, former 
ail-American at Boston College, and 
his assistant coaches Chet Gladchuk 
and Hank Woronicz, teammates at 
BC, will start eleven Eastern Mass- 
achusetts players against the Judg- 
es in an attempt to pull over the 
.500 mark. The entire backfield 
graduated from area high schools 
in the same year — 1953. 

Success On Road 

The Redmen, under Coach 
O'Rourke, have had amazing suc- 
cess in their "home" games away 
from home. In the four years that 
Charlie has coached UMass, he has 
won five games and lost only two 
on Eastern Mass. soil. The start- 
ling part of this record is that four 
of the wins were major upsets. 

In 1952, the Redmen up-ended a 
previously undefeated Brandeis 
club in O'Rourke's first appearance 
in the Boston area. Noel Reeben- 
acker, his little all-American quar- 
terback, also led the Statesmen to 
a triumph over Tufts at the Oval 
the same year. Charlie didn't lose 
East of Worcester until Northeast- 
ern walloped his "rebuilding" team 
in 1953, 41-14.

where the Redmen stunned the 
Crimson, 13-7. After a midseason 
slump, UMass called on their East 
em Mass. charm again to upset 
Tufts, 20-14, in the season finale. 

Harvard got its revenge but good 
this fall, when they wrecked UM 
60-6 at the Stadium. But the 
O'Rourkemen proved that the jinx 
had not rubbed off when they 
smashed Northeastern's unbeaten 
on r6GCPu Wna a 33-13 decision two 
weeks ags. 

All Are Bay Staters 
The reason for the Redmen suc- 
cess in the Boston area is probably 
because most of the team hails 
from that section. All of the play- 
ers are Bay State residents — some- 
thing no other State University can 
claim. All eleven starters who will 
face Brandeis will be playing be- 
fore the home folks. 

Dickie Wright, the team's lead- 
ing ground gainer, is a native of 
Waltham, the sight of Saturday's 
game. Wright starred in the North- 
eastern game when he scored twice 
— once on a 91 yard rush — and 
passed for a third tally. 

Whalen A Westerner 
The remainder of the starting 
backfield, all of which are juniors 
at UMass, includes quarterback 
Tom Whalen, Springfield; halfback 
Charlie Mellen, Lowell ; and fullback 
Roger Barous, Andover. 

Allen Back At Center 
The line has senior Russ Kidd, 
Fitchburg, and junior Dave Ingram, 
Fitchburg at ends; seniors John 
McOowan, Fitchburg, and junior 
Art Miller, Lexington, at tackles; 
junior Jim Dolan, Andover, and 
sophomore Lou Varrichione, Natick, 
at guards; and junior Buzz Allen, 
Dorchester, at center. 

With the boys playing their best 
on native turf, and with the Red- 
men sporting a 5-2 record in the 
Boston area, one eould not blame 
Director of Athletics Warren Mc- 
Guirk (also BC) for seeking an 
all Enstrrn Mass. schedule for fut- 
ure years. 



Rhody & UConn. 
Vie For Bean Pot 

The Yankee Conference gridiron 
race narrowed down last week to 
two teams, with Rhode Island and 
Connecticut meeting at Storrs on 
Nov. 12 for the 1955 championship 
and the coveted Bean Pot. 

Coach Harold Kopp's unde- 
feated Rams of Rhode Island hold 
a slim advantage in the champion- 
ship race, being tied, but unbeaten, 
and i-n case of a deadlock in this 
45th meeting of the old rivals, 
Rhody will claim the Bean Pot. 
The UConns were beaten by Maine, 
and must win to stake their claim. 

Connecticut moved into conten- 
tion last week by disposing of New 
Hampshire's defending champions 
20-7 before 11,000 at Storrs. The 
Wildcats had previously tied 
Rhode Island 13-13 early last 
month. 

But comparative scores show the 
fa ams about even, for if Connecti- 
cut was two touchdowns stronger 
off the New Hampshire score, the 
Rams were three touchdowns 
tougher off the Maine scores. 
Rhody defeated Maine 7-0, and the 
Bears in turn trimmed Connecti- 
cut 13-0. 

Each team has a major victory to 
stud the season, Rhody having up- 
set Brown 19-7, and Connecticut 
tipping over Boston University 
10-7. 

While the UConns were whip- 
ping New Hampshire by a solid 
20-7 margin last week, the Rams 
were wining ovev stubborn Spring- 
field by the same score. Maine 
moved a step nearer its ptate ser- 
ies title by humiliating Colby 53-0. 

Elsewhere in the Yankee Con- 
ference Massachusetts, suddenly a 
"hot club" ran roughshod over 
Vermont 54-15. The RtfettCfl still 
have a league |MM left, with New 
Hampshire at Durham r>ii N'ov. 12. 



Final for Horn and Will 
Co-captains, Bob "Squeaky" Horn 
and Will Lepkowski will don the 
flannels for the last time, and they 
are definite threats to dethrone the 
defending champ, George Terry of 
BU. 

Win Conn. Valley 
With the exception of the two 
senior co-captains, Coach Bill Foot- 
rick is bringing a young but eager 
crew of sophomores, who last week 
walked away with the Conn. Val- 
ley Championships at Burlington, 
Vt. The hill-and-dalers finally blast- 
ed old man Superstition by winning 
their first Conn. Valley title in 
several years. 

One Point Win 
The major stumbling blocks to a 
UMass victory appear to be Conn.. 
Maine, N'eastern; but with tongue 
in cheek, Coach Footrick predicts a 
one point victory for "his boys." 

The field of seventeen college 
teams, plus a lonesome stranger 
from Holy Cross, will include the 
six Yankee Conference squads and 
most of the other major New Eng- 
land teams, with the exception of 
the Ivy League. 



Run Last Year's Course 

They will be running over the 
same course that they completed in 
last year's meet. Of course, most 
of the squad ran in the freshmen 
event last year, but this year they'll 
be running in the "big" one. 

The roster for this race is: Bob 
Horn, Will Lepkowski, Tom Flynn, 
Carl Baker, Jim Kelley, Leland 
Chisholm, and Pete Schwarz. 
Frosh Run First 

The frosh seven will meet the 
same sixteen schools in the 1:30 
prelim. 



Indians Travel 
To Battle Spfld. 

Today, the little Indians from 
the U of M travel to Springfield 
Colloge to dampen the beginning 
of an otherwise happy homecoming 
weekend. 

The Jr. Redskins will be gun- 
ning for their first win of the sea- 
son having lost to UConn 39-0 
and Worcester Academy, 7-0 Also, 
they will be looking for their first 
touchdown of the season. 

Lack of Depth is Problem 

Lack of depth seems to be the 
major problem Coach Woronicz has 
to face as he has only one center 
available in Dick Morreale of Wal- 
tham. Tackle John Komminsky has 
been working out at this position 
and although inexperienced, may 
be able to gain some valuable 
game experience this week. 

The ends are also a little thin 
with only Larry Treadwell, Bob 
Foley, and recently converted half- 
back Larry Holt, avaiable. 

The high scoring potential of 
this team is yet to be realized, and 
this could be the week of double 
flfUTM for the little Indians.

Tired Booters 
At Home Sat. 
TakeOnClark 

by a Staff Reporter 

Saturday at 2:00, the varsity 
soccer team makes it's first ap- 
pearance before the home-folks 
since the ill-fated bus trip from 
UConn. Clark Univ. of Worcester 
is making the "trip into the Hinter- 
lands" to provide the opposition for 
the still physically sub-par Red- 
men. 

Lacked A Bench 

The team is going all out on this 
one to "win it for the coach", Larry 
Briggs, who is still convalescing 
from the wreck on the highway. 

With Briggs out of action, Dave 
Damon has been filling in as pro- 
tern coach with the able assistance 
of co-captains Bob Abramson and 



This Saturday, as in weeks 
past, golden-throat Norm 
Marcus, and the roving crew 
of WMUA will air the Bran- 
deis game direct from Wal- 
tham beginning at 1:25 p.m. 
This will be the last away- 
game coverage, as UNH comes 
during the holiday period. 



Mel Allen. This trio will be guid- 
ing the reins for the Clark game 
and probably for the season's fin- 
ale versus Tufts here next week. 

Reach Peak for Season 

The boys think that they have 
reached their peak for the season 
and have confidence in their taking 
both of these games for Larry 
Briggs, as well as Charley Nied- 
zwiecki and Phil Dana-Bashian who 
are also out for the year. Both 
schools h*tve solid teams but the 
Redmen hope to take both in a 
blazing finish to an unusual, to say 
the least, season.

A Campus-to-Career Case History 




"It sounded good to me 



5? 



Charles Poole, B.S. in Business Ad- 
ministration, Boston University, '52, is 
working for New Jersey Bell Telephone 
Company 89 a Traffic Superintendent. 
For a young man he has a lot of respon- 
sibility. And responsibility is what he 
likes. He has three New Jersey ex- 
changes under his supervision — Dover, 
Madison and Washington— which total 
nearly 16,000 customers, and he man- 
ages a force of some 160 operators, in- 
cluding nine chief operators and fifteen 

service assistants. 

m 

"It's the type of job," says Charlie, 
happily, "where you can never say 
you're caught up. There's always some- 



thing to do." Each day brings Charlie 
new problems, new experiences. And 
with every passing day his grasp of the 
telephone business is getting stronger, 
his value to the company is growing. 

That spells the kind of future that 
Charlie wants: the opportunity to take 
an ever-increasing part in an ever-ex- 
panding business. 

"It sounded good to me," Charlie says, 
remembering what he thought when the 
telephone interviewer had finished tell- 
ing him about the company and its fu- 
ture. And, as you might expect, it still 
sounds good to him. 



Charlie Poole is typical of the many young men 
who are building careers in telephone work. Sim- 
ilar opportunities exist today with other telephone 
companies, and also with Bell Telephone Labora- 
tories, Western Electric and Sandia Corporation.

with roses and huge "cabbage 
head" chrysanthemums formed the 
central display at the annual Hort 
Show held at the cage Nov. 4, 5

Hamlin To Be Open 
Over Long Weekend 

Hamlin House will be the only 
women's dorm open this weekend 
for those who may be staying on 
campus over the holiday. 

Women planning to stay in the 
dorms for at least two nights on 
the weekend must vacate their 
dorms by 6 p.m. Thursday and 
will be assigned a room in Hamlin. 

Those who are planning to stay 
for Thursday night only, may oc- 
cupy their own room providing 
that they vacate before 9 a.m. on 
Friday. 

The Dining Commons will be 
open Friday. 



SENATE MEETING 

President Mather will talk 
to the Senate tonight about 
the "Freedom Campaign" and 
the students' part in it in Skin- 
ner, room 4, at 7 p.m. All 
Senate meetings are open to 
the campus. 



Winter Carni Decorations 

The decoration committee 
for the Winter Carnival Ball 
will meet on Wednesday, Nov.

lounge. 



ATG, CHI O, 
BerkshireLead 
Chest Drive 

Returns from the Campus Chest 
fund drive totaled $1970.36 yes- 
terday, George Ditomassi, co- 
chairman of the Campus Chest 
Committee announced. Seven 
dorms and ten fraternities had not 
yet made returns. 

ATG leads the fraternities so 
far with a contribution of 367%. 
Among sororities, Chi Omega is 
ahead with 223%. Berkshire is top 
dorm with a return of 104%. 
2 Placques To Be Awarded 

Percentages are based on a one 
dollar contribution from each per- 
son living in the house. If mme 
than one dollar per person is re- 
ceived, the percentages rise above 
100%. 

Two placques will be awarded: 
one to the top fraternity or soror- 
ity, and another to the winning 
dormitory. 

"Faculty Frantics", the musical 
comedy presented by the faculty 
last Tuesday, added a substantial 
$446 to the till. 



ChangesMade 
In Handbook 

Colored sections, added pictures, 
and a new sectioning set-up are 
part of the UM Handbook's new 
face-lifting plans for 1956-57. 

According to Marcia Winegard, 
Kditor-in-chief, this "year of 
transition" at the university is the 
most opportune time for a revis- 
ion of the book. 

The book will be divided Into 
five main sections, two of which 
will be printed on colored stock. 
Pictures of campus scenes will re- 
place the line sketches formerly 
used on the head pages of sec- 
tions. 

All administrative information, 
formerly scattered throughout the 
book, will be compiled into one 
complete section and printed on 
light grey stock. 

The calendar will he printed on 
a light yellow mat instead of the 
usual glossy paper, t<> obtain a 
Ix'tter writing surface. 

The separate sections on Stu- 
dent Information, Stockbridge, and 
the Telephone Directory will re- 
main white. For the first time, 
Student Information will also be 
compiled into its own separate 
section, as will the Telephone Di- 
rectory. 

The Student ami Administrative 
Information sections will he more 
explicitly sub-sectioned on both 
head pages. The Unrnltxmk'H ta- 
ble of Contents will contain Mocks 
of black, indexing off the pages 
of each individual section. 



Nearly % Of Class 
Votes For Officers 

Robert Meyers and Donald La- 
verdiere v/ere the winning presi- 
dential candidates in yesterday's 
primary elections for freshman 
class officers. Laverdiere beating 
out Joseph Bourgeious by only four 
votes. 

Successful primary candidates 
for the vice-presidency were Jac- 
queline Bourbonnais and Arthur 
Caron. Judith Heaney and Mary 
Lou Moore were victors in the 
contest for secretary, and Eliza- 
beth Grimm and Barrie Sullivan II, 
candidates for treasurer, also won 
spots on the final election slate. 

A voting turnout of 71.7% of 
the freshman class was reported 
by senate Elections Committee 
chairman Lawrence Parrish. 

After four ballot counts, made 
late last night at Mem Hall, found 
Laverdiere the winner by four 
votes, Bourgeious declined an Elec- 
tion Committee offer to hold an 
official recount. 

The final freshman class officer 
elections will be held on Monday, 
Nov. 14, under the same central- 
ized voting system utilized in the 
primaries. 

The complete primary elections 
results are as follows: for presi- 
dent, Robert Myers, 294; Donald 
Laverdiere, 2F>3; Joseph Bourgeois 
249; Robert Walker, 190; Robert 
McCarty, 183; Jerry Hellerman, 
158; Henry Padden, 99. 

For vice-president: Jacqueline 
Bourbonnais, 504; Arthur Caron, 
370; Phyllis Scher. 211; Margaret 
Clements, 202; Carolyn Poole, 162. 
For secretary: Judith Heaney, 364; 
Mary Lou Moore, 275; Sally Wheel- 
er, 209; Carol Ann Wilkins, 187; 
Sylvia Finos, 174; Kuni Kreutel, 
144; and Olga Kandianis, 105. 

For treasurer: Elizabeth Grimm, 
462; Barrie Sullivan II, 381; Gail 
Gentile, 316; Priseilla Hoyt, 189. 



UM. Squeaky 2nd 
In NE; Frosh Win 

Boson, Nov. 7 — The UMass 
cross country team made 
a valiant attempt to regain New 
England honors, but finished 
second to a powerful Maine 
club, 43-86, today. 

Bob "Squeaky" Horn, in clos- 
ing out a brilliant three year 
cross country career, was sec- 
ond in the race, finishing behind 
Paul Firlotte of Maine. Fir- 
lotte was the only man in New 
England that Squeaky couldn't 
beat during the three years. 

The UMass freshmen won the 
New England crown, 69-79, over 
Rhode Island. Eric Dahl was 
fifth to break the tape. 

Wil Lepkowski, the Redmen 
co-captain along with Horn, was 
a strong sixth in the varsity 
race which took place at Frank- 
lin Park. The underdog UMass 
runners battled the potent Black 
Bears to the wire in a game 
trying to win this big one. 

At Springfield today, the I'M 
frosh closed out a winless sea- 
son by bowing to the Springfield 
College gridmen. The Little 
Redmen of Coach Hank Wor- 
onicz dropped three in their ab- 
breviated season. 

The score of the game and 
other details were not available 
at press time tonight.

University Honors 

Why don't we recognize the lifetime 
values which are gained in college? 

We acknowledge the athletic stars with 
letters which they wear on their sweaters; 
we recognize the leaders of the various or- 
ganizations through the RSO awards; we 
have an Adelphia and a Mortarboard, Scrolls 
and the Maroon Key but what have we for 
the students who receive good marks and do 
good work but are not the top members of 
organizations and who frequently do not 
even belong to an extra curricular activity? 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1955 




We have the Collegian "M" Page ; we have 

the publication of Dean's List the semester 

after the grades are made and frequently 

.the semester the persons concerned have 

graduated. 

Why can't we have some sort of recogni- 
tion for these people who do commendable 
work? 

If we had something like a university 
honor group which would be open to all stu- 
dents instead of such senior organizations 
as Sigma Xi and Omicron Nu perhaps we 
would have more people interested in getting 
better marks and being more active? 

What do you think about this?

A Rose Is A Rose... 

The Hort Show has come and gone for 
another year. This year's show was quite a 
change from those in years past what with 
the focal point off in a corner and a fairly low 
center area which gave an impression of spa- 
ciousness which has been lacking in years 
past. 

We enjoyed the departmental displays 
and the individual lOxlO's, the displays from 
other schools and the arrangements from 
pros. In fact we liked the whole darn thing. 
But . . . there was the lighting. We dropped 
in about dusk when there seemed to be little 
difference between indoors and the outdoors. 
Maybe this was because of the contrast be- 
tween all the bright and beautiful things; 
maybe it was our eyes playing tricks or may- 
be it was the lighting . . . 

We like to think that it was our eyes but 
many others mentioned it to us. We regret 
this since it was a good show.

Amendment Shows Effect 

by Micki Marcucci 

Robert Hoffman, senator-at-large from 
the class of 1958, has beat the senate execu- 
tive committee to the punch and resigned 
his seat. 

Hoffman, who has been absent from over 
three meetings, was due to appear before 
the execs, as the constitution requires, yes- 
terday afternoon for dismissal or explana- 
tion for his delinquency. However, George 
Cole has received a letter of resignation from 
Hoffman. According to one of his fellow 
senators, Hoffman's academic committments 
don't permit him time for senate member- 
ship. 

A seat is now vacant for the position of 
senator-at-large. In an exclusive interview, 
Richard Keogh, senator from Chadbourne, 
said he will announce his candidacy for the 
seat. Keogh said, "The position of senator- 
at-large will broaden my area of responsibil- 
ity." If he wins the seat, according to a re- 
cent Keogh motion, he must resign his Chad- 
bourne seat and an election will be held there 
also. 

If he is defeated, however, he will not 
lose his present position. "You see, I have 
nothing to lose," he said. Before the election, 
he plans to put "the campus-wide issues, and 
there are many of them" before the campus. 
He declined to enumerate any of them, how- 
ever, saying that "his platform" will be pub- 
lished in the Collegia* via the letters-to-the- 
editor column. "It's cheaper that way," he 
pointed out. 

It is commendable that Keogh wants his 
responsibility broadened but he seems to 
have been covering the whole campus in his 
senate activity anyway. His motions have 
ranged from the ventilation problem in the 
Greenough cafeteria to the possibility of a 
university-owned printing press. 

The majority of motions thus far have 
concerned the Buildings and Grounds Com- 
mittee — always an area of complaint — but at 
least two other committees have shown con- 
siderable activity. 

The Public Relations Committee, led by 
Joseph McParland, currently has an enthu- 
siastic plan to make contacts with Boston

The Reality 
Behind The Make -Believe 



by Bob Littlewood 

Our loom and its magic carpet 
of the theatre, our hush of 
the make-up and the make 
believe are all manufactured. 
Work and rehearsals get the lines 
and blocking to the point where an 
actor can reach for his character 
and make a little more of a play 
than a rote recital of nonsensical 
utterings. But he must be told 
where to walk and sit, when to 
turn and whom to face. This takes 
a director. He must have a chair 
to prop the seat of his character 
in, lighting to give him business 
and bolster his stage presence. 
This is the province of the techni- 
cal director. 

These directors are RD advisers 
who lead an army of students. This 
cordon of collegiates are sub-di- 
vided into committees. The back- 
stage or technical crews have re- 
sponsibility for all the various 
necessities. Properties, sound 
lights and make-up all have com- 
mittees who rush about with the 
dread production date looming 
short days ahead. The production 
manager, also a student, is in 
charge of compiling these scurried 
efforts into a logical conglomerate 
— in time. 

Stage manager — in these days 
in charge of scenery — builds, car- 
ries (drops), and positions the 
flats (hope-built, prayer-main- 
tained canvas bits of quasi-reality) 
and all the other images of like 
used for effect. 

Each of the committees consists 
of students whose own particular 
work usually has little to do with 
his major. Some have had experi- 
ence trudging to the UM grass- 
lands, but most have just acquired 
an addiction to this narcotic — like 
show business. 

Properties — the people respon- 
sible have to have pack rat ten- 
dencies, acquired or inherited. 
People approached with requests 
for live roosters, snakes or nine- 
foot feather boas can be assured 
of the sanity of the inquirers — 
just prop crew members. 



The lighting committee has of- 
ten had to manufacture its own 
equipment, delving into vast sup- 
plies of tin cans and electrical 
tape to give birth to the moonlight 
that, gives the breathless spell to 
an otherwise cold stage. Their 
hours have the added attraction 
of allowing many a sunrise to be 
observed. 

Sticky-fingered, eye probers, as 
they seem to many nervous actors, 
or make-up members as they term 
themselves, have the job of hid- 
ing and camouflaging ordinary 
mortals and coming up with pris- 
oners, tramps or countesses. 

The rumbling sounds of an 
erupting Vesuvius or a rooster's 
crow have been needed to add to 
the fluff of the theatre. Sounds 
manufactured and recorded this 
bit froth for use. 

Whisking about at the head of 
this enthusiastic hopefulness are 
the technical and dramatic direct- 
ors. Faculty members carrying 
full teaching loads, they find that 
this added work has its greatest 
satisfaction, not in the final re- 
sult, but in the co-operation of 
these hurried harried students. 

Performance night brings these 
people all under the rushing si- 
lence back stage. Broken by the 
scrapings of bits of furniture or 
excited searchings for the missing 
glass or hat, this silence shakes 
on its own intensity. Lighting 
crew scans the book for the light- 
ing cues, adjusting the board to 
the requirements of the swiftly 
moving plot. Each of the crew 
members stifles noises with 
shushes. Above the silence floats 
the guaze of the play, billowing 
with its action and imagination, 
deep voice are not their contri- 
bution but they are the reality be- 
hind the makeup and the make- 
believe. 

The people here are tiptoey 
characters silent in their proceed- 
ings. The raised eyebrow and the

Senate Who's Who: 

Secretary Winegard 

by Cynthia Lonstein 

The secretary of the senate this year is a 19- 
year-old miss who hails (no Fall River, Mass. 
Vital statistics on Mareia Winegard are that the 
five foot eight, brown hair, and green eyed junior 
is a history major at UMass. 

Last year Mareia was a member of the calendar 
committee and RSO. Presently Mareia is editor-in- 
chief of Hm HtnullxHtk, and a member of the Index, 
Collegian and Sigma Delta Tau sorority. 

Mareia has definite views towards the operation 
of the senate. She said, "If every senator is an intel- 
ligent in.lividual, voicing the opinion of his constitu- 
ents, and does his job to the best of his ability, there 
will he a united, potent senate, a student body more 
interested in and more conscious of the work of the 
senate, and an absence of any so-called 'factions' 
supposedly operating in the senate." 

Marcia's opinion of this year's senate is one of 
extreme optimism. "So far this year." she said, "the 
senate is an alive, enthusiastic body, acting con- 
sciously on a variety of problems. There is no re:. 
son why it should not accomplish more this year than 
it has in past years." 

This year Mareia is advocating certain measures 
such as a pictorial booklet of the university campus 
to be sent to all incoming freshmen. She's trying to 
promote closer co-operation by Women's Affairs with 
Women's Judiciary, Women's House Counsellors and 
other honorary groups. She feels strongly that jun- 
ior senators should prain more experience in campus 
affairs so that they will be able to fill positions of 
responsibility next year. Mareia is striving for closer 
co-operation between the senate and the adminislra 
tion so that the senate will he more powerful in stu- 
dent affairs. 



The Mail Pouch 



Yahoo... 



To the Editor: 

The Tuesday editorial concern- 
ing the lack of faculty support for 
Ya Hoo is an illustration of the 
infantile attitude toward teachers 
appropriate in grade school, when 
without Teacher's prodding, no- 
thing extra-curricular was accom- 
plished. Only now we do not nicely 
ask for their help — we demand it. 

I can see it now. The weary pro- 
fessor drags home at the end of a 
long day. His loving wife sugesta 
a relaxing movie. 

"Fraid not, dear," says the 
prof, turning his pockets inside- 
out. 

"Oh, what were the students sel- 
ling today?" asks wifie. 

"Subscriptions to a humor mag- 
azine." replies tired prof. 

"Well," says wifie, "at least now 
we'll have something to paper the 
baby's room with. Maybe the car- 
toons will keep him entertained." 

I noticed no mention of how 
good Ya Hon (an appropriate 
name remember Gulliver's Trav- 
els?) is, or how much the faculty 
would be missing by not subscrib- 
ing to it, only whimpers that the 
faculty seemed to find it "a hard- 
ship to contribute to a student en- 
deavor." Understandably, we need 
faculty approval for extra-curricu- 
lar activities, but can't we depend 
on our own nftirit, "participation- 
wise" and "money-wise?" 

Come on, let's grow up and stop 
picking on the faculty.

...And The Cops 

To the Editor: 

I believe that the Handbook- 
states that the speed limit to be 
observed by automobiles on the 
campus is 15 m.p.h. It also makes 
the statement that said law is 
strictiy enforced. 

I wonder if the campus police 
have ever visited the vicinity of 
Mills, Baker, and Van Meter. The 
mad race that takes place on the 
hill up to Butterfield is quite in- 
teresting. It is a true testing place 
for new and old cars. Speeds of 
said car3 may range anywhere 
from 15 (for the old cars) to 45 
m.p.h. for the newer ones. 

The lowly pedestrian, of which 
there are a few on campus has 
quite a time dodging this cars. 
The present odds are that he has 
a 60-40 chance to live. 

Maybe if the campus police were 
to pause from their activities of 
trying to tag illegally parked cars 
and concentrate on these maniacs, 
the odds might go up in favor of 
the pedestrian. 

Let's wake up before someone 
fwtt killed. You know it as well as 
I do. The speed limits are not en- 
forced. The campus police know it. 
Just observe the cars trying to 
make the hill up to Van Meter and 
watch them come down. 

Either change the speed limit or 
enforce it. The pedestrian is en- 
titled to know what the odds are 
on his chance to live.

What's doing 

at Pratt A Whitney Aircraft 



World Travel 
in the Jet Age 




Carrying forward a great tradition of American 
leadership in aviation, a team of four world-famous 
organizations has ushered in a new era in commercial 
transportation. Between December 1958 and January 
1961, Pan American World Airways, who pioneered 
trans-oceanic air travel with Pratt & Whitney Aircraft 
piston engines, will put into passenger service twenty 
Boeing 707 and twenty-five Douglas DC-8 jet trans- 
ports. This fleet of airliners will be powered by twin- 
spool axial-flow jet engines, designed and developed by 
Pratt & Whitney Aircraft. 



Some recent engineering graduates are today working 
on careful analytical studies of the J-57 to provide 
mmmprrial airlinr operators with data that will in- 
sure maximum performance with operating econom- 
ies and rugged dependability. 



Behind this significant achievement lie countless en- 
gineering man-hours. The development of a jet-turbine 
powerplant with more than 10,000 pounds of thrust, 
entailed far more than performance on paper. By the 
time the engine was proved experimentally in 1950, 
Pratt & Whitney Aircraft engineers had coped with 
some of the most complex problems of present-day en- 
gineering. Just how successfully they solved them is 
wel! evidenced by rhe widespread use of the J-57 turbo- 
jet in today's military aircraft for both intercontinental 
and supersonic flight.

EDITORIAL 

The 43rd Annual Hort Show has 
come and gone. The judges have 
made their decisions. The displays 
have been taken down. 

But the show will be remembered 
as all shows are. 

We will remember the hours 
without sleep, the last-minute con- 
sultations and anxieties. We will 
remember the final flurry and ex- 
citement getting everything ready 
on time. 

A show like this teaches some- 
thing to everyone. The students 
participating learn more of the as- 
pects of showmanship and artistry. 
The profs learn more about their 
students. And the public learns 
more about the university. We see 
people gathered around the infor- 
mation booth requesting bulletins 
and help for their farms and gar- 
dens. 

It is at times like this that we 
feel proud of our school and the 
wonderful people in it, the oppor- 
tunities we have and wonderful 
times we have together. 

Maybe this year's show wasn't 
as big as those in the past have 
been but it was certainly every bit 
as good.

Political Potpourri . . . 

(Continued from page 2) 
and other large city TV and radio 
stations in hopes of getting he go- 
ahead to prepare a script, probably 
in panel discussion form, about the 
university for presentation on the 
air. This has been attempted in 
other years with little success but 
with no decline in the energy of 
McParland and his committee, this 
plan has a good chance of being 
realized this year or next. Another 
large project is the rewriting of 
"Spotlight," a publication designed 
to generally inform the Massachu- 
setts public about their state uni- 
versity. In considering a recent 
motion by Marcia Winegard con- 
cerning the sending of a campus 
pictorial to incoming freshman, the 
committee has decided to make the 
new publication a combined pictor- 
ial and information booklet. The 
initial problem, as usual ,is money. 
Tlie last time the "Spotlight" was 
rewritten, the finances came from 
combined efforts of Isogon (now 
Mortar Board) and senate appro- 
priation. Of course, at that time 
the person in charge was president 
of Mortar Board. It is hoped that 
this organization, along with the 
senate and Adelphia, will cooper- 
ate this year also in this import- 
ant project. 

Another problem-ridden project 
is the erection of large signs on 
highways entering Amherst pro- 
claiming that this is Amherst, the 
home of the University of Massa- 
chusetts. 

In a recent meeting with Pro- 
vost McCune, the Curriculum Com- 
mittee was told that it will be al- 
lowed to work closely with the fac- 
ulty Council of Student Curricu- 
lum, which will concentrate this 
year on reviewing and revising the 
core curriculum. 

The excellent membership of 
this committee promises some ex- 
cellent results. After recent inves- 
tigation of the possibility of estab- 
lishing a freshman or sophomore 
journalism course to encourage 
better appreciation of newspapers 
and to permit practical experience 
for work on the CM s gie m and in 
a career, it was decided that such 
a course would not fulfill enough 
of these purposes to merit estab- 
lishment. However the project is 
still being considered.

"New?" said the friend. "What do you mean -new?" 

"I mean modern -up-to-date- designed for today's easier,

"Like this 2.9 litre L-head Hotchkiss drive double overhead

"Exactly," said Beppo.

"It's a male," said Beppo. 

"Sorry," said the friend. "How long have you had him? 

"About a year," said Beppo. 

"Have you done a lot of work on him?" asked the friend. 

"Oh, have I not!" cried Beppo. "I have replaced the pushrods 
and rockers with a Rootes-type supercharger. I have replaced 
the torque with a synchromesh. I have replaced the tachometer 
with a double side draft carburetor." 

"Gracious!" exclaimed the friend. 

"I have replaced the hood with a bonnet," said Beppo. 

"Land o' Goshen!" exclaimed the friend. 

"I have replaced the gasoline with petrol," said Beppo. 

"Crim-a-nentlies!" said the friend. 

"And I have put gloves in the glove compartment," said Beppo. 

My, you have been the busy one!" said the friend. "You must 
be exhausted." 

"Maybe a trifle," said Beppo with a brave little smile. 

"Do you know what I do when I'm tired?" asked the friend. 

"Light a Philip Morris?" Beppo ventured. 

"Oh, pshaw, you guessed!" said the friend, pouting. 

"But it was ea3y!" cried Beppo, laughing silverly. "When 
the eyelids droop and the musculature Mgfl and the psycho is 
depleted, what is more natural than to perk up with today's 
Philip Morris in the red, white and gold package?" 

"A bright new smoke in a bright new pack!" proclaimed the 
friend, his young eyes glistening with tears. 

"Changed to keep pace with today's changing world!" de- 
clared Beppo, whirling his arms in concentric circles. "A gentler, 
more relaxing cigarette for a sunnier age, an age of greater 
leisure and broader vistas and more beckoning horizons!" 

Now, tired but happy, BepDo and his friend lit Philip Morrises 
md smoked for a time in deep, silent contentment. At length 
the friend spoke. "Yes, sir," he said, "he certainly is a beauty." 
"You mean my 2.9 litre L-head Hotchkiss drive double over-

huge man of the state, with products listed with the proper city, depicted the theme of 
the show — "The State is Our Campus." This happy couple, who came all the way 
from Leach House in the rain to view the exhibit, were only two of the 19,000 people who 
saw this year's show. This roto section brings out the highlights of the flower extrava-

The IFC gave the program of 
communal buying among the fra- 
ternities a vote of confidence last 
Wednesday night. This program 
should help fraternities to pur- 
chase better commodities and ser- 
vices at lower prices. 

The IFC is now in the process 
of constructing a new constitution 
for the council. This constitution 
will serve to define the duties and 
activities of the council with res- 
pect to the fraternities on campus. 

Rushing 

AEP] held the last of closed 
smokers Monday night. The ter- 
mination of closed smokers means 
that there Is approximately one 
month of rushing left b efor e 
freshmen have to choose their fra- 
ternities. It is very important that 
these freshmen make the right de- 
cision because the wrong choice can 
lead to disappointment later for 
the person and the other members 
in the fraternity. IFC President 
Ixiuis Neusner said that freshmen 
should choose their fraternities 
carefully and they will never be 
sorry.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1955 



Redmen Win Third Straight by Topping Brandeis 



Whalen's Passing, Kidd's Receiving Pace 
UM Attack; 77 Yard Play Decides Game 

Tommy Whalen was sailin' while Jimmy Stehlin was 
failin' Saturday at Gordon Field where the red-hot Redmen 
continued their winning habit with a 17-6 victory over Bran- 
deis. 1600 fans braved the rains and gale winds to watch 
the Homecoming game played in ankle-deep mud. 
Whalen had his best day as a 



passer with seven completions good 
for 201 yards. He tore a page out 
of the book of Stehlin, who was 
touted as one of the country's best 
small college aerial artists. Stehlin 
connected seven times for 71 yards 
and was noticeably hampered by 
the wet ball. 

Some sharp receiving by Cappy 
Kidd helped Whalen's average, and 
also set up the UMass scores. The 
two longest gains of the first half 
were on Whalen to Kidd tosses, 
with the second one setting up the 
first UMass field goal in several 
seasons. 

It was surefoot Charlie Mellen 
who put the Redmen ahead late in 
the second period with a three- 
pointer from the fifteen yard line. 
It was a strong boot on an angle 
that cleared the uprights cleanly to 
give UM the short half time lead. 

Up until the time of Mellen's 
boot, it looked like a possible score- 
less tie was in the making. Nine 
punts were kicked in the first half 
before the scoring ice was broken. 

The first time the Redmen got

tr.Cir uuriuo uii wic wui, mitjr HUOM- 

ened deep in Brandeis territory. 
Billed as an all-running team, the 
Statesmen crossed up their hosts 
with successful passing all day. 
Pass Sets Up Threat 
A Whalen to Kidd aerial put the 
ball on the Judges' nine, but a loss 



killed the threat. 

Then there were no more serious 
attacks until Fran Spriggs blocked 
a Stehlin punt and got UM going 
again. Whalen tossed to Kidd and 
he ran to the ten. Three short pass- 
on a pitch-keep play and a penalty 
es failed, and Mellen booted the 
field goal to make it 3-0. 

Two muddy ball clubs battled on 
even terms in the third period, with 
Brandeis threatening late in the 
chapter. John Murphy fell on a UM 
fumble — one of six that the Red- 
men lost in the game. 

In eight plays, this 34 yard drive 
had reached the end zone and Bran- 
deis led, 6-3. Earlier in the third 
period, a pretty 43 yard jaunt by 
Dick Wright had been called back 
because of backfield in motion. The 
play had clicked for a TD. 

With the Judges ahead, UMass 
forgot its defensive football and 
started to move. On the first play 
from scrimmage after a BU punt, 
Whalen called the back breaking 
play of the game. 

It was the pass play where Whal- 
en runs to the right, fakes a throw 
to his end and naif back down ihe 
right side, and throws a long one 
to fullback Roger Barous on the 
opposite side. It worked to perfec- 
tion. The Judges were faked out of 
their defensive positions by the 
short receivers, and Barous was all

Seven Seniors In Final 
Contest AtN.H. Next Week 



Seven Redmen will be playing 
their final game next Saturday at 
Durham, New Hampshire. Co-cap- 
tains Don Johnson and John Mc- 
Gowan, Cappy Kidd, Hal Bowers, 
Ronnie Matheson, Buzz Johnson 
and Joe Cardello are in their final 
season of eligibility. 

In their attempt to finish with a 
5-3 mark (the first winning record 
under Coach O'Rourke) the Redmen 
will face a tough New Hampshire 
club. The Wildcats topped UMass, 
32-12 in their last two meetings. 

This season, UNH has lost to 
UConn in the Yankee Conference, 
and has tied Rhody and Maine. Ted 
Wright, a rugged halfback, is their 
main offensive threat. 

* * * 

BRANDEIS BRIEFS: The com- 
bination of Tom Whalen to Cappy 
Kidd connected for 93 yards in the 
first half, on just three plays. The 
first catch by Kidd was a miracu- 
lous one-hander (Sandy Amoros 
style) after which the big end jug- 
gled the ball before getting full 
possession. 

* * • 

The field wasn't TOO wet! Pud- 
dles extended between the 40-yard 
lines, and near the sidelines at the 
30's. Elsewhere the water had sunk 
in, and just splashed when trod 
upon. 



Dickie Wright's two best runs 
had sad endings. The speedy right 
half, playing before a home folks 
crowd at Waltham, had a nifty 43 
yard TD run called back because 
of offside. Then a 51 yard return 
on an interception terminated in his 
re-injuring the right knee. 

* * * 

Dickie was carried off the field 
with the injury, but recovered 
enough to walk to the dressing 
room. He was presented with the 
game ball, and turned it over to 
his Dad who waited anxiously out- 
side the door. 

* * * 

It was the final game for Norm 
Marcus, genial WMUA sportscast- 
er. After three seasons of squint-

Booters Win, 7-0 



The UMass booters "won one 
for the coach" Saturday when they 
blanked Clark, 7-0, in their first 
home appearance since the unfor- 
tunate bus accident three weeks 
ago. 

Lou McCarry and Buddy Bau- 
chiero, a couple of Springfield 
boys, led the UMass scoring with 
two tallies apiece. The other goals 
were recorded by Billy Burke, 
Dick Golas, and Lou Green. 

The game ball will be presented 
to Coach Larry Briggs by team 
co-captains Bob Abra'hamson and 
Mel Allen when the coach returns 
from the hospital this week. Coach 
Briggs received internal injuries 
in the Peter Pan Bus crash in 
Monson after the last Redmen win 
— a 3-1 triumph over UConn. 
McCarry Scores Firsi 

The winners started fast Satur- 
day, with McCarry registering his 
first goal in the first period. Bau- 
chiero chipped in with a second 
period score to make it 2-0 at the 
half. 

The spirited Redmen poured it 
on in the later stages of the game, 
as Burke and Bauchiero tallied in 
the third period, and Golas, Mc- 
Carry, and Greene counted in the 



final quarter. 

Sutcliffe Stars 
The game was an all-around 
success for the Redmen booters. 
Goalie Lee Sutcliffe was sharp in 
the nets, and the defense held 
tightly. 

Saturday, UMass will close its 
soccer season against Tufts at 
Alumni Field. It will be the final 
game for such veterans as Co-cap- 
tains Allen and Abrahamson, 
Steve Minsky, Ken Crooks, Bau- 
chiero, Pickles Hintze, and Sut- 
cliffe. 



Whalen Cops Prize 

Completing seven passes for 
201 yards, punting like a pro in 
the clutch, and calling a heads up 
game will give anyone the Well- 
worth Award. Tommy Whalen, who 
did just that Saturday against 
Brandeis, is a deserving winner of 
the season's seventh award. 

"Mr. Clutch" is proving himself 
to be an able passer week after 
week. Critics have long said that 
that is all he needs to become a 
great college quarterback. The 
Wellworth Pharmacy agrees.

traveled 51 yards with it, before 
someone tackled him and reinjured 
his knee. The runhack set up the 
last score of the game. Whalen 
passed to Barous for eight yards, 
then TD specialist Hal Bowers came 
into the game. 

Bowers carried to the 18, then to 
the six, and then into paydirt for 
his seventh score of the year. He 
has tallied in five of the seven UM 
games. 

The line deserved a heap of cred- 
it for the win. Kidd and Dave In- 
gram held the ends smartly; John 
McGowan and Fran Spriggs were 
stalwarts at tackle; Jimmy Dolan, 
Lou Varrichione and Ronnie Mat h- 
eson were tops at guard; and Buzz 
Allen and his handy replacement 
Johnny Tero were workhorses at 
center. It was a well earned victory 
for a non-"mud team." 



Aggies 
Trounce Nichols 

The Stockbridge blue devils 
playing their roughest foe of the 
year, defeated Nichols Jr. College 
26-0. 

The success of the game was 
due to the whole effort of the of- 
fensive and defensive teams. 

The first score of the game came 
in the first period as Dick jfoynd 
crashed 12 yards for the score 
which was set up when Jon 
Holmes blocked a Nichols' punt. 

The second period scoring was 
contributed by Jon Holmes as he 
scooted nine yards for the score 
on a reverse. The touchdown was 
made available when Tierney 
pounced on a fumble on the Nich- 
ols' 2 yard line.

LONDON PHILHARMONIA 
PERFORMS TOMORROW 

TO C ELEB RATE ITS TENTH ANNIVERSARY 



Frosh Elect Myers, Caron 
Heaney, Sullivan To Office 



The Philharmonia Orchestra of 
London, called by British music 
critics, "the best in England", will 
give a concert at the university 
tomorrow at 8 p.m. in the Cage. 

The orchestra is on its first 
American tour, celebrating its 
tenth anniversary, and will ap- 
pear in major cities of the east 
and middle west, as well as Can- 
ada. 

The London Philharmonia is the 
youngest major orchestra in Eur- 
ope, and at present is under the 
direction of Herbert Von Karajan. 

Kara j an received unanimous 
critical acclaim on his American 
debut last winter, when he directed 
the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra 
on a five-week American tour. 

The versatile conductor has 
performed in most of the leading 
music capitals of Europe, and on 
Nov. 19, will fly to La Scala, to 
open Europe's most celebrated 
opera house. He is noted as one of 
the leading artistic personalities of 
the decade. 

Organized in 1945 by Walter 
Legge, the orchestra has been built 
on the principle that each indiv- 
idual musician must be an artist 
distinguished in his own right. 

The group will employ no per- 
manent conductor, to avoid being 
marked as a "one man band." It 
has style, not a style. 

Included in the program of the 
105 piece orchestra for the UM 
concert are: The Water Music 
Suite by Handel-Harty, Variations 
of n. T'nenw by Haydn, Opu* 56 by 
Brahms. 



Senate Tables 
Keogh Motion 

Last Tuesday, the senate tabled 
for the second straight week a 
motion which would require va- 
rancies occurring when a residen- 
tial senator is elected senator-at- 
large to be filled. 

Alan Christenson tried to amend 
Richard Keogh's motion to necessi- 
tate the resignation of his present 
seat by any senator running for at- 
large. President George Cole did 
not allow this amendment as it 
did not immediately concern the 
original motion. 

Later, Christenson attempted to 
bring up his proposal as a new 
motion, but could not do so be- 
cause it was not on the agenda. 

The senate appropriated $126 
to the band and Precisionettes for 
the UNH trip and $65 to the five 
students who are to attend the 
Student Union conference at the 
University of R.I. this weekend. 
Both expenditures had been okayed 
by the finance committee. 

An Ad Hoc committee of Keogh, 
John Chaffee, Stanley Merrill, and 
Michael Corvir. will make a "fact- 
finding visit" to tnc veteran's of- 
fice. Several senators objected to 
the use of the word "investigate", 
which appeared in the motion as 
proposed by Chaffee. 

Chaffee and John Rosenberg 
were the only senators opposed to 
a motion by Keogh to have the 
public relations committee investi- 
gate the possibility of a univer- 
sity press. 

The men's affairs committee 
consisting of all the male senators, 
elected Chaffee chairman over 
James Cogswell and Robert Tut- 
hill.

R.D. 9 s Set Stage 
For 'Madwoman 9 

Not all the buildings on campus 
were deserted over the long Veter- 
ans Day weekend. 

In Bowker Aud., the Roister 
Doister stage crew, headed by 
manager, Frank Smith, worked to 
prepare the staging and scenery 
for their production, The Mad- 
UHrman of Cha.il lot. 

The set. designed by Henry B. 
Peirce of the Speech department, 
consists of a ten foot stairway and 
an outdoor cafe scene. 

The completed scenery permits 
the cast to have technical rehears- 
als. The play is full of action as 
will be displayed in the various 
circus-type acts. The juggler, bi- 
cycle rider, and the others included 
must be able to coordinate their 
actions with the set. 

One of the RD's stated, "The 
trial scene is good but the tea 
party scene of the four madwomen 
should be even better than the 
Mad Hatter scene in Iiewis Car- 
roll's famed story, Alice in Won- 
derland!

TABLE OR ACT? 

Last year the senate formed ad hoc com- 
mittees to investigate motions. This year 
they have gone one better and table the mo- 
tions thus putting them out of existence for 
the time being. 

It would seem to us that there are better 
ways of acting on motions than burying 
them in this fashion. 

Why does the senate consistently do this 
to every motion which threatens to become 
controversial? It appears that they do not 
want to become embroiled in any arguments 
which might take up too much time. We 
could understand why several motions were 
tabled the night of "Faculty Frantics" but 
there were no faculty or student events of 
such importance last week or the week be- 
fore. Still motions were tabled wMch could 
have been handled at that time. 

In referring to the number of motions 
which have been tabled we are not referring 
to those which involve an amendment to the 
constitution which must be tabled for one 
week according to the senile foiiKuLution. 

Maybe instead of having the senate "in- 
vestigate the possibility of" we, the student 
body, should investigate the senate. 

A.D.S. 



Walk On Lights 

We watched with much pleasure the rais- 
ing of the roof of Maohmer Hall last week. 
This week the rest of the flors will go up. 
This still proves interesting to many of the 
students ; even though the crowd has thinned 
out to some degree, it is still almost impos- 
sible to go from Stockbridge to North Col- 
lege in the old time — there are certain pedes- 
trian hazards like people suddenly stopping 
as they realize that something is going on — 
or up. 

There is always something going at a 
place this large and some of it, believe it or 
not, is for the best. 

We refer especially to the construction 
which is regarded by many as a purely oc- 
cupational hazard with trucks and power 
shovels and ditches, especially ditches. Which 
brings another thing to mind. 

The other night coming back from sup- 
per, we carefully counted and there are only 
four flares burning along the entire stretch 
from the corner of Ellis Drive and North 
Pleasant and Old Chapel. This may seem 
like a small number if you haven't been along 
through that area much but actually these 
flares that are there are extremely well- 
placed and are actually the only ones neces- 
sary since they are located next to the deep- 
est holes. 

Besides — to those of you who have agi- 

aft 

tated for more flares to warn people of the 
dangers of pedestrian travel after hours, 
none of these excavations are located across 
walks or anywhere where students, faculty 
or administration should be walking, espe- 
cially after dark. 

These holes are not even in places where 
students have shown a preference for walks 
where there are no walks as yet. Other 
places than these are not meant for walking 
and you should not be in such places. The 
next thing we know people will be agitating 
for lights in the President's Garden.

Newer and bigger buildings are not the only 
change proposed for the face of the university. The 
university will also change in a new direction. 

Because of the rerouting of route 116 to run 
through the farm lands along Mill River, the main 
entrance to our university will be from the west. 

This change is symbolic of the university's turn- 
ing its back on the older, more conservative ideas 
of New England and looking to the changing ways 
of the west for the pattern of its growth. 

The preliminary Master Plan, parts of which 
were used as soon as they were completed, is now 
fully completed, according to Mr. Johnson, university 
treasurer. 

The first copies of this plan indicate less build- 
ing on the eastern edge of campus and an increase 
west of College Pond. It shows the possibilities of 
a large dormitory area on Alumni Field, a group of 
athletic fields on the farm lands west of the tennis 
courts and a large liberal arts building on the pres- 
ent site of Drill Hall. 

The only present building which seems fairly 
certain of its future existence among the many pro- 
posed campus improvements is Old Chapel. This 
view was also brought out by President Mather in 
his speech to the student senate last year. 

Clark Hall will be lost amid the buildings of the 
newly proposed Science Center. These buildings 
may possibly surround the outdated exterior which 
Clark now displays to visitors upon arriving at the 
university. 

Among the first of the many radical changes 
will be the cut-off from the new four- lane route 116. 
This cut-off will terminate in a traffic circle between 
the math building, which will be replaced by the 
partially constructed classroom and the Phi Sig 
house. Perhaps the greatest improvement connected 
with the traffic circle and the new route lib is the 
modification of the present traffic problems through- 
out the campus. We may not have to dodge heavy 
traffic to cross from one side of campus to the other. 

The preliminary campus master plan will defi- 
nitely undergo many changes before its proposals 
are finally accepted and put into practical use. It 
will now be carefully studied and critically analyzed 
in accordance with present campus construction and 
future needs. Each member of the administration 
and campus planning council will be given the op- 
portunity to voice his opinions and criticisms. 

However, some of the future building plans 
which have already been approved include an addi- 
tion to the chemistry building, a women's physical 
education building, liberal arts building, a library 
addition, and the public health building which will 
be the first wing of the new science center. 

Fraternity and faculty housing is still uncertain, 
even though sites for a new fraternity row have 
been proposed in the orchards behind the president's 
house. Faculty apartments may be built toward 
the south side of the campus. 

But this new look to the west is definitely a look 
to the future, for a great deal of time and money 
will be needed for the realization of such a plan. 
In many cases the state legislature has not yet even 
appropriated the money for the final plans of these 
buildings, to say nothing of the money needed for 
their construction. But we can dream and hope 
and look forward to the day when we, as alumni, 
may return to the university and driving off the new 
highway to the west of campus, look up and see a 
new university, rising like the sun in the east.

The Reality Is Coming! 

by Bob Littlewood 

A high stairway bedecked with Paris vagabonds leads into the 
cellar kingdom of the Mad Woman of Chaillot. From her high-backed 
wicker throne she rules the little people of Paris and the myriads of 
stray animals which parade the Parisian alleys. 

Not believing in the factual and cold, she chases away images of 
herself actual and old, and lives in the half-lit world of wonderous 
make-believe. The chill of reality is dissipated by the warmth of her 
regalness. 

Amid a massive conglomerate of bones, chicken livers and giblets 
She decides to erase from the world the grimy spots of evil. A flirt 
of a nine-foot feather boa or a clank of a dinner bell and her fascinated 
audience join her in a mad mazurka. 

Chaillot, "citadel of management" — to the audience a weird cafe 
filled with weird characters — is the court of pomp and strange circum- 
stance which Countess Aurelia daz- 

calculated to take nine weeks to 

wash off. 

The pack rat crews who plun- 
dered attics and cellars to gather 
a sundry of oddities have plumped 
them on Bowker's boards. Dinner 
bells and bicycles, cigars and fea- 
ther boas, all to be passed to the 
proper nervous actor at the prop- 
er nervous moment. 

Add Thickening 

The brew is thickening, technical 
rehearsals, and scenery, and soon 
to be — dress rehearsals, are being 
stirred in. A sniff of this cookery 
masterpiece reveal imaginery dogs 
or talking water bottles. Perhaps a 
sip would show the king of the 
sewers and his effervescent tales 
of a life beneath the upper world 
of Paris. 

The mixture of backstage and 
onstage — technical and dramatic — 
performers and production crews. 
Nerves tighten as lines slip and 
fall from groping nervous mental 
fingers. Tenseness spreads as the 
last of production's necessities are 
readied. And down to the last min- 
ute races the last excited week. 

The tiredness all bubbles off on 
opening night. The nervous strain 
is replaced by a nervous giddiness 
— prayerful and hopeful. The cur- 
tain parts on another production. 
A fine play — a comedy, light yet 
with meaning and purpose. The 
audience will be welcomed by the 
villain and bid adieu by the Coun- 
tess and in between an hour or so 
of the delights of Paris. 



zles and subdues. 

Jean Giraudoux, the wielder of 
the coy, caustic pen from which 
flowed the lives of this play, has 
mixed "morals with mink" and 
right with wrong. 

Enter the Villain 

No play, comedy or otherwise, is 
complete without its villainous 
crew of evil disciples. Here we 
have a lovely set and a thirsty 
crew of prospectors and presidents 
seeking out beneath the streets of 
Paris sweet oozy pools of oil. Down 
with the awful Eiffel — fooey to 
Notre Dame. To raise money, Paris 
must be razed? So be it. 

They are of the army of the 
tasteless and senseless. Blind to 
color, deaf to sounds, they plot the 
downfall of Paris, heedless of her 
people and disdainful of her 
Countess. 

The Broth Is Boiling 

Trial scenes, love scenes, and all 
the other theatre plusses are 
stirred into the zesty dish prepared 
for a Bowker presentation this Fri- 
day and Saturday evenings. To sip 
or to swallow, the play contrives 
the apertif effect with a touch of 
the blue plate special.

Political Potpourri: 



Secretary Is Hampered 



by Micki Marcucci 



Paperwork, the bugaboo of all 
organizations, is a problem that 
the senate secretary has always 
been plagued with. 

Motions, lengthy discussion, and 
intricate committee reports re- 
quire that secretary Mania Wine- 
gard keep her notetaking pencil 
going throughout the meeting. She 
seldom has an opportunity to con- 
tribute to discussion and sometimes 
misses points of the meeting. 

Under the terms of a motion 
submitted by Mona Harrington, 
Marcia Winegard, and John Chaf- 
fee after much discussion, two re- 
ports will be prepared — the first 
by Miss Winegard containing 
action on agenda motions, amend- 
ments to motions and motions in- 
troduced at the meeting. The sec- 
ond reports shall include the above 
information plus all discussions 
and committee reports. A non-sen- 
ate reporter shall pre]>are this re- 



port which shall not be read at the 
meeting. 

The motion also includes an idea 
to expand the agenda system. The 
whole plan sounds feasible — 

The election committee last week 
received a petition from the sup- 
porters of Joseph Bourgeois for 
Frosh president containing 500 
names be placed on the final bal- 
lot. 500 names — but Bourgeois did 
not win in the primaries. In a 
vigorous write-in campaign, Bour- 
geois beat out LaVerdiere for 
second place. Bob Myers took first 
in both elections. 

Perhaps the Men's Affairs Com- 
mittee under its new chairman, 
John Chaffee, will this week, at 
least discuss fully the motion re- 
cently referred to them concerning 
a required average for male sena- 
tors. Passing comment — the sen- 
ate's favorite pastime lately is tab- 
ling and postponing.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1955 



Booters Win Finale, 2-1 



A pair of first period goals en- 
abled the UMass soccer team to 
*iip Tufts at Alumni Field last 
Saturday afternoon. Coach Larry 
Briggs recently discharged from 
the hospital with a heavy brace 
to support his injured back was 
on hand to view the opening quar- 
ter and the scores by Dave Heintze 
and Billy Burke which provided 
the margin of victory. 

Jim Hirtle, the team's manager 
who is still hospitalized following 
an operation on his leg, was given 
the game ball. 

The Redmen gained the lead 
with the suddenness of an explos- 
ion. Only 21 seconds had passed, 
when "Pickles" Heintze boomed a 
shot past the Tufts' goalie. Mid- 
way in the same period, Billy 
Burke, the team's leading scorer, 



netted what proved to be the win- 
ning marker. Tufts was able to 
pierce the rock hard UMie defense 
only in the second stanza. Other- 
wise the sturdy defensive crew 
lead by Co-Captains Mel Allen and 
Bob Abrahamson was inpenetrable. 

The victory gave the squad a 
4-4 record for the year. The boot- 
ers took 2 of the 3 games after 
the accident. 



ITS SQUEAKY AGAIN 

Bob "Squeaky" Horn was the 
winner of this week's Wellworth 
Award. Squeaky finished Becond in 
the New England cross country 
championships last week to merit 
the award. The Wellworth Phar- 
macy salutes him at the finish of 
a brilliant career. 



Sno' Game 

Snow, New Hampshire's biggest 
product, showed up in full force 
Friday to end all hopes of play- 
ing the UMass-UNH game at Dur- 
ham. The game is scheduled to 
be replayed this Saturday there. 

For UM it will be the finale 
for seven seniors, including co- 
captains John McGowan and Red 
Johnson. UMass will be seeking 
win number five against three de- 
feats this year. 

Dickie Wright, injured against 
Brandeis two weeks ago, will be 
back in action against the Wild- 
cats, in all probability. The right 
halfback is the team's leading 
ground gainer to date. 

Practice sessions resume today 
on Alumni Field. Yesterday the 
Redmen were given their first day 
off since the season's start. 



Harriers In IC4A Meet 



Yesterday Coach Bill Footrick 
took his New England champion 
freshman cross team to New York 
to compete in the IC4A national 
championships. Varsity co-captains 
Squeaky Horn and Wil Lepkow- 
ski also made the trip to compete 
in individual events. 

The varsity has just completed 
a season which saw them win three 
dual matches, and drop two. They

Well, Dave, I've been doing production work at Du Pont 
for about seven years now, and I'm still getting in- 
volved in new things. That's what makes the work so 
interesting— new and challenging problems arise all 
the time. 

To generalize, though, the duties arc largely admin- 
istrative. That's why effectiveness in working with 
others is one of the prime requirements. Teamwork is 
important in research and development work, lor sure. 
But it's even more important in product ion, because 
you work each day with people having widely differ- 
ent skills and backgrounds. 

A production supervisor needs a good understanding 
of engineering and scientific principles, too. He has to 
have that to get the best results from con. plicated 
equipment— but he doesn't necessarily need the spe- 
cialized training that goes with research and develop- 
ment work. A real interest in engineering economics 
and administration is usually more helpful to him 
here than advanced technical training. The dollar 
sign's especially important in production work. 

It all adds up to this, Dave. If you enjoy tc.-.n.. . k, 
and have a flair for large-scale, technical equipment, 
then you'll find production work mighty rewarding.

T Z?F22 SS^'S^IPresented By RD's Tonight 



Delta Sigma Chi has "gone na- 
tional." 

The UMass fraternity is now a 
local affiliate of Tau Kappa Epsi- 
lon, commonly known as "Teke." 
A formal initiation into the fra- 
ternity will take place about the 
middle of February, according to 
Donald Hanson, president of the 
chapter. 

Petition Accepted Last October 

Negotiations, said Hanson, which 
began over two and a half years 
ago, culminated last October when 
the campus group voted to peti- 
tion the well-known fraternity for 
membership. The petition was ac- 
cepted. 

UMass will be the fifth Yankee 
Conference school at which Tau 
Kappa Epsilon has a chapter. The 
fraternity, rated among the top ten 
in the country, has 117 active 
chapters at such schools at Pur- 
due, Rutgers, Bucknell, Ohio State, 
and Oklahoma A. and M. 

Rigid Entrance Requirements 
"Teke," states Hanson, "has one 
of the most rigid sets of entrance 
requirements known to the na- 
tional fraternity system. Only fra- 
ternities which are well established 
physically and financially and are 
very active on campus are con- 
sidered." 

Hanson also pointed out that 
the fraternity has no discrimina- 
tory clause in its constitution.

Functions Of Veterans' Office 
Okay, Says Senate Conunittee 

J _ w 

Provost, Dean 
TobeHonored 



Campus rumors that the veter 
ana' office has been doing an inad- 
equate job have no factual basis 
according to the report of a four- 
man senate Ad Hoc committee 
which investigated the complaints. 

The committee of Stanley Mer- 
rill, John Chaffee, Michael Cor- 
vin, and Richard Keogh talked 
with George Emery, director of 
the veteran's office, and concluded 
that he is doing a good job under 
somewhat trying conditions. Em- 
ery said that he could use more 
help, but "then again, so could 
everybody." 

Keogh, in his report on the 
buildings and grounds committee, 
said that the main reason that 
next to nothing has been done by 
his committee is because he has 
not been able to contact "the elu- 
sive" George Brehm, the superin- 
tendent of buildings and grounds. 

A new bylaw proposed by Mona 
Harrington, Marcia Winegard, and 
Chaffee redefining the duties of the 
senate secretary was passed unan- 
imously, after the senate moved 
to suspend the rules requiring by- 
law or constitutional changes to 
be tabled for a week. 

The bylaw will make the secre- 
tary* Miss Winegard, responsible 
for the mimeographing of com- 
plete agendas which will be avail- 
able for all senators and also will 
be posted in conspicuous places 
on campus, in addition to prepar- 
ing the condensed form of the 
agenda for publication in the ('<>/-

A paid senate reporter will be 
hired to take complete m — ting 
notes of all discussion, while the 
secretary will have only to re- 
cord voting on the motions. The 
secretary will thus be able to par- 
ticipate in the discussion to a

MAY WE SUGGEST 

Because of the lack of help, the Snack 
Bar has been forced to close down unex- 
pectedly, in the course of the day, in order 
to get cleaned up, and put in order. No 
amount of prodding, pleading, or urging has 
caused work lines to form outside the door. 
It seems that no one has time to work in 
the Snack Bar. 

As a result, each person who enters, and 
expects to have anything to eat at all, must 
first clean his own table off onto someone 
else's, before he can put down his books and 
go to buy his meal. In the meantime, the 
refuse is returned to him — but that is an- 
other story. 

If the Snack Bar cannot get student help, 
then perhaps it had better take up some new 
tactics. Why not place several receptacles 
in inconspicuous, yet handy places, for the 
disposal of paper rubbish ? A few milk racks 
for the empty bottles might not be unsightly 
if tucked away in a corner. 

A bit of the seldom-used space behind 
the middle partition might even be used for 
the return of dirty dishes and silverware. 

These opinions are merely a few from 
the student body. They make no claim to be 
expert. But perhaps the management of the 
Snack Bar could take them into considera- 
tion. It sounds like a gruesome amount of 
work on the part of each student, yet, we 
personally would rather clean up after our- 
selves, than others. M.L.

Leap 



Before You 

Freshman girls are being given a wonder 
ful opportunity to meet and gut to know the 
sororities, a.nd their way of life, this Sunday, 
when Round Robins will take place. 

These Round Robins serve many pur- 
poses, and include a lot of fun in the bargain. 
This is one of the few times that freshmen 
will be allowed inside the houses. It is an 
excellent chance to satisfy any curiosity one 
might have about the functioning of these 
houses. 

The freshman, or anyone, for that mat- 
ter, should become acquainted with all of the 
houses, and most of their members, before 
she considers pledging. She may not even 
know whether she wants to join or not. In 
any case, Round Robins spell out an enjoy- 
able afternoon, with her own, and upper- 
classmen. 

We remember the excitement of Round 
Robins in the fall of our freshman year. It 
was the first and only time we were in some 
of the sororities on campus. We were met 
in the "rec" room by a Pan-Hellenic Council 
member, who acted as our guide to the sev- 
en sororities. At each door, we were greeted 
with a burst of song, and taken on a personal 
tour of the house. Then came refreshments, 
and lively conversations. Between bites of 
cookie, we learned many things about the 
university and its sororities. We passed com- 
ments on everything from "getting a *C av- 
erage" to fraternity men. 

When the alloted time was up, we left, 
feeling that the afternoon had been most 
profitable. At the time, we never stopped 
to think of the work and planning that had 
gone into making these few hours so inter- 
esting. It was only later that we came fully 
to appreciate PanHel, and the work it was 
doing, for us. We look back on it now with 
fnod memories, and strongly urge every 
freshman girl to take advantage of this op- 
portunity. M.L. 



Dites Moi Pourquoi . . . 

by Sandra Feingold 

The French language has invaded the UMass campus. Actually, the 
invasion came in 1945, when French House was first established. From 
then on, it has been a peaceful occupation. 

La Maison Francaise had its first home in — of all places — the house 
now occupied by Alpha Gamma Rho. Within those walls, 13 girls joined 
their mutual interest in France with their desire to speak its language. 

The next year, the war was over. 
When the boys came marching 
home, many returned to the UM 
campus, and the girls were evict- 
ed. After that, La Maison Fran- 
caise was housed successively in 
Thatcher, Butterfield, Adams and 
Leach. 

The French government has tak- 
en an interest in their little colony 
on our campus, and several yeai-s 
ago, sent a shipment of 500 choice 
French books on a wide variety of 
subjects. The collection has recent- 
ly been housed in its own library 
in Leach House. 

Every year, a French girl either 
lives in French House, or works 
very closely with it. Last year and 
this, that student has been Mile. 
Madeleine Vuateau. a graduate stu- 
dent from Paris, who is majorinfi: 
in English here. 

The spark plug of French House 
is Miss Katherine A. Clarke, of the 
French department. The house is 
her pet, and she works for it fer- 
vently. Its success may be attribut- 
ed in large part to her efforts. 

Each year, La Maison Francaise 
has a soiree, usually in the spring. 
On two occasions the French gov- 
ernment sent displays of paintings 
for exhibition. Other activities of 
French House are musicals, and 



student-faculty teas. 

The purpose of French House is 
to allow girls who are interested in 
learning to speak French — but who 
needn't be French majors — to 
speak French with a native. 

This year something new has 
been added. Each Monday, Wednes- 
day, Thursday, and Friday, from 
four to five p.m. the members of 
La Maison Francaise, plus Mile. 
Vuateau, Miss Clarke, and Leach 
housemother. Mme. Gutowska. as- 
semble informally in the lounge, 
and "talk of many things". Not 
shoes and ships and ceiling wax, 
as a rule, but rather knitting, tra- 
vel and fashions. 

The house, which this year has 
nine members, is purposely organ- 
ized loosely so as nut to interfi are 
with the student's other activities. 
Officers for this year are: Shirley 
Kwasnicki. president: Veronica 
Teta, vice-president; Ann Harring- 
ton, secretary; Glennis Evans, 
treasurer; Mary Lou Walters, his- 
torian; and Pauline Sidoti, lihrar 
ian. Other members include Evelyn 
Murphy, Corrine Cavanaugh, and 
Mile. Vuateau. 

All people concerned with this 
occupation agree that it is the 
most pleasant in history. Vive 
I/occupation! 



Stop Complaining, 
Checks Are Coming 

(Note .The f allotting report k that of the senate com- 
mittee formed under S 50 to conduct a factfinding visit to 
the office of veterans coordinator, Mr. George C. Emery. 
We hope that this report uill answer the varying rumors 
which hate been circulating.) 

The four member ad rwc committee composed of 
Senators Merrill, Chaffee, Keogh and Corvin met in 
the office of George Emery, university veteran's co- 
ordinator on Nov. 10, 1955. 

The following information was gathered: 

Eight to ten years ago the VA had a man here 
at the university to handle veterans' educational 
problems under the old or World War II G.I. Bill. 
When this individual left, the university Placement 
Office took over his functions and duties as a serv- 
ice to those veterans attending classes here. The 
present veterans' coordinator, Mr. Emery, devotes 
the greater part of his time to the problems of vet- 
erans' educational benefits under PubUc Laws 16,346, 
and 550, the latter the so-called Korean GI Bill. 

The university veterans' coordinator also has a 
limited amount of information concerning those vet- 
erans' benefits other than educational, insurance, 
loans, etc. 

Assisting Mr. Emery is one secretary who spends 
the greater part of her working day on veterans' 
problems. When asked if he needed more help, Mr. 
Emery replied, "Yes, but so does everyone." 

Working through the Vocational, Rehabilitation, 
and Educational section of the Boston Regional Of- 
fice of the VA, Mr. Emery believes the serivce he 
gets from them to be equal to that being received 
by any other school. 

From the VRE section, individual monthly re- 
ports go to the financial section of the Boston office, 
which is currently handling approximately 18,000 
reports per month, with the peak yet to come. Mr. 
Emery stated that there are now 765 veterans at- 
tending UM, with 100 expected to enter in Febru- 
ary, 1956. 

The majority of complaints received by Mr. 
Emery from students regard late checks or a mis- 
take on the part of the Boston regional office. In 
either case, a phone call from Mr. Emery to the 
Boston office can usually correct the situation. 

After gathering the above information, the com- 
mittee met and came to the following conclusions: 

The university's veterans' coordinator, Mr. Em- 
ery, is doing a trying job well under difficult cir- 
cumstances. 

The talk and gossip which served to bring about 
the formation of the committee was just that - - talk 
and gossip. 

If more veterans would bring their complaints 
to Mr. Emery instead of sitting around and com- 
plaining, the solutions to their problems could be 
much more quickly and easily found. 



The Mail Pouch 



Announcing — Gumquat! 

To the editor: 

The timely article in last Fri- 
day's C<>//'.'."'"" about Mr. Keogh's 
forthcoming campaign for the of- 
fice of Senator at Large proves 
once again that the Collegian is 
living up to the tradition of a 
"Free and Responsible Press." 

The article stated that Mr. 
Keogh's "platform" would Boon be 
made public. I feel that this state- 
ment deserves further explanation. 
The past few months have seen 
Mr. Keogh build up an enviable 
record of public service in the 
Senate. He has been instrumental 
in having street lights installed 
in hazardous areas; in having the 
"no cars rule" for Frosh arid 
Sophs partially lifted; and in 
setting up campus-wide central- 
ized elections. Mr. Keogh's enun- 
ciation of the policy that "Compe- 
tition without Nutrition is Ex- 
ploitation" has been reflected in 
his whole-hearted support of Sen- 
ate financial assistance to groups 
who represent the university, such 
as the Flying Redmen, Bay State 
Rifles, Precisionettes, and the Rod- 
men Band. 

In the realm of academic affairs, 
an investigation of the need for a 
university - operated used book 
store was made by Mr. Keogh and 



cleared up many questions on this 
important matter. The senate Cur- 
riculum committee is now looking 
into the need for a Journalism 
course for Frosh and Sophs as a 
result of one of Mr. Keogh's sen- 
ate motions. 

For the future, Mr. Keogh be- 
lieves in a "Partnership for Pro- 
gress' between the administration, 
faculty, and student body. The use 
of all available resources and a 
sense of contributing to the growth 
of a great university will be the 
result of making the senate Build- 
ings and Grounds committee the 
channel for the expression of stu- 
dent opinion about the University 
Master Plan. Student organiza- 
tions can expect Mr. Keogh will 
be responsive to their increasing 
financial needs, since he believes 
that the Student Tax money 
should be spent wisely, not hoarded 
to build up an impressive reserve 
in some bank vault. 

I feel that a persual of the past 
few weeks senate Agendas will 
give an idea of the scope of Mr. 
Keogh's plans for the future. He 
has put in bills that have ended 
the worry about senate interfer- 
ence in Athletic Policy matters, 
possibility of "Kangaroo Courts", 
and tin- lack of a student reprc-

Senate Who's Who: 



Treasurer Babb 

by Cynthia Lonsteim 

The new treasurer of the senate is tall, blond 
Roger Babb who hails from Bridgewater, Mass. 
Roger's major is political science and his minor is 
economics. 

At present Roger is chairman of the Finance 
Committee, president of the Lawyer's Club, vice 
president of the International Relations Club and 
a member of the Society of Political Science. 
He was elected to Who's Who in American Colleges 
and Univrrsilit'x and he is a member of the Eco- 
nomics Club and RSO. 

The new treasurer has concrete aims in building 
up the prestige of the senate. His favorite analogy 
is that of the senate as a bridge linking the student 
body to the administration. Over this bridge ideas 
flow and are eventually incorporated into some 
worthwhile student endeavor. But the bridge must 
have a firm foundation on each side and this means 
that understanding should exist between the admin- 
istration and the senate acting for the student 
body. 

Roger also thinks that we can build up the pres- 
tige of the senate in three ways. The first is to get 
the support of the administration on policies. Sec- 
ondly he claims, "We must have a dynamic mem- 
bership in the senate and we have it this year." 
I>astly and most important, he says, "We must get 
the students to express their desires to their repre- 
sentatives." "This is the HARDEST problem to 
combat." 

Roger is vitally concerned with planning for 
the future of the university. Future enrollments 
will increase to 10,000 students. One plan is to re- 
vise the constitution of the senate. An increase in 
enrollment will mean a boost in the senate budget 
and Roger fools that the student body should get 
the most for its money. He advocates the installa- 
tion of a Core-Curriculum with the students being 
compelled to take certain subjects in each college. 

Roger's summation of this year's senate is short 
rind sweet. "It's the best senate I*ve ever seen."

STOCKBRIDGE NEWS 



— EDITORIAL 

A Fraternity, Dormitory and if 
we only had a Sorority . . . Make 
top sweeps in the campus chest 
drive. 

Surmounting last year's percent- 
age of 232% Alpha Tau Gamma 
came in first this year with 376%, 
while Berkshire claims the Dormi- 
tory Plaque for 104%. 

So this is good, Stockbridge can 
and does do things. 

The football season has been the 
best in years, club-wise and fan- 
wise. 

The Hort. Show turned out to be 
a big success. 

BUT why stop here ? What about 
the Student Council's tabling and 
retabling ? 

What is the Senior class doing 
this year besides going to school? 
And what about the STUDENTS: 
do they all like everything? Why 
not say so and if they don't why 
aren't they throwing these things 
at the Student Council, the Colle- 
gian, Class Officers, Dorm Officers 
and Representatives? 

There's something big that might 
start in Stockbridge this year but 
it's going to take more than hockey 
sticks and a puck. And its going 
to have to take a lot more than 
the track team, that should have 
developed last year. So ? ? ? ? 

And SO Stockbridge, let's keep 

on going. 

When YOU get back from 
Thanksgiving vacation "thought 
Bheets" are going to be passed on 
to all students and faculty mem- 
bers, which means all you've got 
to do is do!!! 

Stockbridge Editor 



Our Function 

This editorial represents some- 
thing novel and we hope it will 
develop into a permanent thing. 

The function of this column will 
be to act as the "Voice of Stock- 
bridge", so to speak. In the future, 
we will expound some of your 
jeers, cheers and what have you? 

It's your school and you have a 
right to speak. We will represent 
you as well as we can, but we can't 
read your minds. 

Remember that destructive criti- 
cism is not our sole purpose. 

It will be our aim to commend as 
well as to attack. Through the Col- 
legian we hope to supply some of 
the representation that Stockbridge 
students have been clamoring for. 

If you have what we consider a 
legitimate issue for discussion, let

Sport's Notes 

Basketball 

The returning veterans for the 
Blue-Devils Basketball team are 
Black, Sears, Joy, Rodenhizer, Zeck- 
er, Mercy, Allessio, Johnson, Ogden, 
and Orello. 

One-Two Punch 

Joy and Black were second and 
third high scorers on last year's 
team, Joy nosing out Black by a 
few points. So the Blue-Devils have 
a one two scoring punch back this 
year. 

Good Height 

This year's team has good height 
and most of last year's regulars are 
back. It looks like a fairly good sea- 
son ahead. 

Start Early 

Most of the returning veterans 
would like to get started before the 
Christmas Vacation, so if any of the 
freshmen who are planning to go 
out for the team could contact Rich- 
ard Black, practice could in all 
probability get started right after 
the Thanksgiving vacation. 

Hockey 

A list will be put up on the first 
floor bulletin boards of all the 
Stockbridge Dorms. Those who 
wish to play hockey for Stock- 
bridge please sign this paper. If 
enough fellows are interested in 
■playing, we will have a team. The 
list will be picked up Tuesday the 
22nd. 



AGGIE'S FIRST DEFEAT 



The Stockbridge Blue-Devils ab- 
sorbed their first defeat of the sea- 
son at Mount Hermon. The Aggies 
ended the season with a 4-1-1 re- 
cord. Due to the injuries of key 
players Mt. Hermon scored twen- 
ty points in the second half. The 
loss of Fiorini and Shields before 
the start of the game and first half 
injuries to Rix and Dugas left the 
Blue Devils without depth for the 
second half. 

Holmes Scores 

The Blue-Devils scored in the 
first five minutes on a 50 yard 
drive in ten plays, that was cli- 
maxed by a 5 yard off tackle rush 
by Jon Holmes. John Sears scored 
the extra point on a line buck. 
Hoyl Scores 

Ormen scored the first touch- 
down for Mt. Hermon in the sec- 
ond period as the first half ended 
with the Blue-Devils holding a siim 
7-6 lead. Mt. Hermon scored once 
in the third period and twice in 
the fourth. Hoyl ended up as the 
game's high scorer with a total of 
13 points. 

End of Careers 

This marked the end of the foot- 
ball careers of such players as 
Dale Freed, John Sears, Vernon 
Rix, Larry Gerrior, George Dugas, 
and Richard Loynd, the other reg- 
ulars that are leaving are Black, 
Tierney, Johnson, Allessio, Roden- 1 Scoring

Views & Reviews 



by Madeleine May 



A sample of the best in music — 
that which has stood the test of 
time — was heard by the UMass au- 
dience who saw the London Phil- 
harmonia Orchestra perform un- 
der the direction of Herbert Von 
Karajan in the Cage Wednesday 
night. 

If the listener could not come 
out humming a whole piece, as 
after the Montovani encert, he 
could perhaps retain a fragment of 
a melody which was part of a 
complex and indefinable composi- 
tion of music. Full comprehension 
as well as complete criticism is im- 
possible to attain after a perfor- 
mance such as this. Possibly this 
is where its value lies. The au- 
dience retains a feeling of having 
come in contact with something 
beautiful or powerful which has 
the effect of pleasure. The person- 
al reaction of each listener has no 
strict limitations and he is given 
free rein to accept and respect — 
to imagine and create — and to en- 
joy. 

For these reasons it seems that 
the conceit by the London Phil- 
harmonia is a more important 
concert than the Montovani ptf 
formance, (although each may l>e 
enjoyable in its own right) espec- 
ially for a college audience which 
owes it to itself as part of a good 
education to become aware of the 
best in music. 

The program offered both wide 
contrast and rich melody. The 
suite, "Water Music" by Handel, 
arranged by Harty, was partic- 



ularly enjoyable for contrast, va- 
rying from the soft plaintive Air 
to a light Gavotte dance. All the 
movements were combined skill- 
fully i<n the finale of the Bourree 
to create a feeling of vigorous 
movement. 

In the second number, "Varia- 
tions on a theme of Haydn, Op. 
56," by Brahms, the listener played 
a merry game of hide and seek, 
trying to detect the melody which 
was cleverly transformed by 
changes in tempo, rhythm and 
mood. It was almost amazing to 
see the same melody used in an 
ethereal manner and then changed 
into a loud bombastic composition. 
Excitement and richness of mel- 
ody were the outstanding features 
of Tschaikowsky's fourth sym- 
phony in F Minor, Op. 36. Con- 
ductor Karajan played up the 
starting contrasts of the sym- 
phony, not even pausing long 
enough between movements for the 
audience to adjust to the change 
in mood. The audience practically 
jumped back in surprise when he 
went right into the fourth move- 
ment with a dramatic gesture 
which brought on a thunderimr 
sound — a complete contrast to the 
gentle pizzicato of the preceding 
EkJMjMD. The theme of the sym- 
phony seemed almost soul pierc- 
ing in parts, but this feeling was 
alleviated by the teasing solo pei 
foi iikiim'c of a waltz. 

The outstanding ability of the 
string section was evident in all 
three com|>ositions, showing its 



versatility both in the long sweep- 
ing movements and the shoit piz- 
zicato sections. At all times, the 
conductor was in complete com- 
mand of the orchestra and music 
with little effort and great effect. 
At this point it seems appropri- 
ate to commend the audience, as 
music is after all a means of com- 
munication which takes two par- 
tics to be fully effective. The au- 
dience rosponded well and revealed 
a certain respect for the music 
which was most clearly displayed 
by the fact that no one clapped 
between movements. 

The orchestra themselves, en- 
joyed performing at. the univer- 
sity. Most of the members hurried 
quickly off the stage, and only the 
sounds of music cases clicking shut 
and bits of clipped English could 
be heard. We did have a short 
chat with a lady violinist who re- 
marked that the audience response 
was encouraging. In reply to a 
question about the Gage, she said 
the acoustics were not particularly 
bad. When asked what was next 
on the agenda for the Philhar- 
monia, she said that they were 
spending the night in one of the 
hotels in town — the Drake. From 
there they are scheduled for sev- 
eral more performances, conclud- 
ing with Boston — and then its 
back co London.

The Best In Music and News On WMUA 



\Whal young people are doing at General Electric 



Young engineer 
decides what colors 

are best for 
G-E reflector lamps 



Which color of light makes people look nat- 
ural? Should a blue light be used more often 
than a red? What kind of effect does a violet 
light have on merchandise? 

In recent years, color lighting has become 
so important in stores, restaurants, theaters, 
and displays that General Electric developed 
a line of new easy-to-use color-reflector lamps 
for this market. 

The man responsible for deciding which 
colors are most effective for users of these 
lamps is 29-year-old Charles N. Clark, Ap- 
plication Engineering Color Specialist for 
General Electric's large lamp department. 

Clark's Work Is Interesting, Important 

In a recent series of tests, Clark made a 
critical appraisal of literally hundreds of 
color-filter materials to find the ones that 
produced maximum results but were still 
suitable to high-production techniques, prac- 
tical stocking and simplified selling. This 
experimental work also had to take into 
account all the information on human per- 
ception of color. 

25,000 College Graduates at General Electric 

When Clark came to General Electric in 
1949, he already knew the work he wanted 
to do. Like each of the 25,000 college-grad- 
uate employees, he was given his chance to 
grow and realize his full potential. For Gen- 
eral Electric has long believed this: When 
fresh, young minds are given freedom to 
make progress, everybody benefits— the in- 
dividual, the company, and the country. 




Hoop Schedule 

The schedule: Dec. 3, North- 
eastern; 6, at Holy Cross; 10, 
Tufts; 14, at BU; 19, BC at Bos- 
ton Garden; 28, 29, 30, the Nation- 
al Invitational Tournament at

Senate . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 
sible thus far. 

Keogh's motion to fill senate va- 
cancies resuiting when residential 
senators are elected senators-at- 
large was passed with no discus- 
sion. Since the motion h;id been 
tabled in two previous meetings, 
president George Cole said he ex- 
pected discussion on the motion, a 
constitutional amendment. He 
pointed out to the senate that 
there should be a reason for tab- 
ling motions. 

The senate approved a motion 
by Evelyn Murphy, chairman of 
the activities committee, to accept 
the constitution of the newly- 
formed Lawyer's Club. 

Roger Babb's motion to investi- 
gate the possibility of allowing 
students to park in the Drill Hall 
lot after 5 p.m. was passed unan- 
imously with no discussion. 

Babb opposed Robert Tuthill'3 
motion which would have a parlia- 
mentarian elected to assist in 
keeping the meeting running 
smoothly, saying that such an of- 
fice would detract from the lead- 
ership of the president. The mo- 
tion was defeated without a single 
favorable vote after Cole pointed 
out that a provision in the con- 
stitution deals adequately with a 
parliamentarian. 

A Keogh proposal to name the 
k.;k1 in front of Mills and Brooks 
"Andrew Road" after the gover- 
nor of the state when the univer- 
sity was founded was defeated. 
Cole, handing t lie senate reins to 
vue-president Lois Toko, oppose.! 
the motkm, saying that G'>v. An- 
drew had favored the new agri- 
cult 'mil school with Harvard, 
rather than locating it in Amherst. 

I'ee. 1 is the <late set for the 
election of a sophomore srnator- 
%\ la 

Kene;h, when Rske<l by Cole to 

'.k a little louder while giving 
his committee report, replied, 
"That's H complaint I've ne\ 
had before."

Hoopsters Open Dec. 3 

The season officially gets under 
way Saturday, Dec. 3 against 
Northeastern at the Cage, but the 
team has been practicing for two 
weeks. 

The schedule is rough — and the 
roughest is their return appearance 
in the New England Invitational 
Tournament at Waterville, Maine, 
over the Christmas vacation — but 
the team will be out to better their 
10-14 record of last year. 

Leading the Redmen toward 
"bigger and better scores in '55- 
56" will be George "Trigger" 
Burke. Trigger gunned ahead of 
his teammates last season to lead 
them in total scoring, total field 
goals, total assists, and was named 




GEORGE BURKE 



to the All-Yankee Conference 
squad. Burke will be setting his 
siu'nls to gain, once a.K<*i", the na- 
tional recognition he received last 
year (named to several All-Amer- 
ica honorable mention charts) and 
to nail down a berth on the All- 
New England five. 

The Worcester twins, Dick Eid 
6'2", and Paul Aho 6'2" will be bat- 
tling each other and everyone else 
for rebounding honors. Ed led in 
scoring two seasons ago, and Aho 
ran score too. 

Foley Second In Points 

Another product of fine competi- 
tion of Worcester basketball is 
Jack Foley 6'2". Jack, in his fad- 
ing jump shot, scored enough 
points to be second only to Burke.

Anyone who did not attend last 
night's meeting for hockey candi-

and sophomores interested in man- 
aging.

Coach Jim Bosco has announced 
that a UMass Gymnastic team has 
been started. The team practices

New Administration 
Tries On Big Shoes 

Of Jack Chevalier • 

• • by DON EVANS • • 

Today starts a new era as far as this reporter is con- 
cerned. With the resignation of Jack Chevalier to a better 
paying job, Sports Focus will no longer appear in the Collegian. 
Instead, a new Editor steps linto his shoes— and he must ad- 
mit, they are big shoes to fill. To Jack, I express my thanks 
for helping me over the rough spots in my journalistic pur- 
suits, and hope to carry on the sports page as he has. done 
in the past. 

Today also starts an entirely new column in this paper, 

and as the figure in the corner 
represents, -we of the staff, hope 
to turn out "bigrger and better' 
sport pages. 

However, this can not be done 
without an adequate staff. With 
the return of Doc Enos, and John 
Holochuck from the football wars, 
and the addition of Matt Sgan and 
Shaun O'Conmell, our staff should 
be well equipped. 

Still, the call goes out for more 
reporters in order to insure com- 
plete coverage to all winter sports. 
Experience is not necessary. Jus<" 
leave your name and campus ad- 
dress on the board in the down- 
stairs office of the Collegian and 
we will contact you. 

This year, as in years past, the 
staff will present their 1955 Fra- 
ternity all-star team. 

Sometime next week, postcards 
will be sent to the Athletic chair- 
men of all fraternities on campus. 
On it you will be asked to list the 
six best men your team faced dur- 
ing their schedule of touch foot- 
ball this fall. 

These cards should be returned 
to the Sports Department after 
your team has made their selec- 
tions. The staff wiii then total 
these cards and announce their all- 
star team the week following the 
vacation. 



lege, Dave Bartley, will be battling 
it out for the guard slot. The cen- 
ter spot is unfilled as yet. 

Sophs Will Help 

Sophomores up from last year's 
Frosh team who will fight for a 
place on the first five are Paul Kol- 
lios, Bill Crotty, George Morin, 
Skip Duprey, and Don Akerson, 
who led the frosh in scoring last 
season. 

An extension of the foul line to 
12 feet will help a short but speedy 
Redmen team. 



A full page of our sport section 
will he devoted to pictures of the 
team, and a brief history of the 
players. 

Your co-operation is needed to 
insure the success of this venture 
as it has been in years past. 

Have patience with us as we 
suffer our maturing pains, and 
soon all athletic teams, frosh and 
varsity will have the complete cov- 
erage they deserve.

SPORTS FOCUS 



Applause For Redmen From W. P. McGuirk; 
Laurels to Coaches, Mgr.; So Long to All 



• • • by Jack Chevalier * * * 

Regardless of the outcome of tomorrow's contest at New 
Hampshire, the Redmen have had a successful 1955 football 
campaign. Heralded by a national magazine as the '^team to 
beat" in New England small college ranks, the UMies were 
a bit disappointing early in the fall with three losses in four 
starts. But they really rallied, although the students fol- 
lowed them more by newspapers than by actual participation. 

And now, as we look back upon their late season con- 
quests, we notice that except for two exceptional small col- 
lege teams, no one in New England could touch the Redmen 

of 1955. 

In fact, a hole in the ground can be singled out as the 
factor which prevented Charlie O'Rourke's forces from en- 
joying a great season. That errant blob of turf on the 20 
yard line at Connecticuts Memorial Stadium 'caused Dickie 
Wright to fall to the earth with 



the ball and the ball game. Should 
Lady Luck have been with us at 
all then, we would have two losses 
where we now have three. 
Rhody Bowl Bound 

Those two losses we should have 
were to an inspired Harvard team 
which scored at every UMass mis- 
take, and to a Rhode Island unit 
that won the Yankee Conference, 
finished unbeaten, and will travel 
to the Refrigerator Bowl game De- 
cember 3. 

The comeback of the Redmen is 
a tribute to Coaches Charlie 
O'Rourke and Chet Gladchuk. Both 
were faced, on September 1, with 




PROF. WARREN McGUIRK 



problems of major readjustment 
when report cards sliced key tac- 
kles from the roster. 

The switching of co-eaptain John 
McGowan to tackle was a move of 
genius hy the Redmen brass, and 



the change to center by Buzz Allen 
also proved close to "miraculous." 
Of course major credit for the 
success of these switches has to go 
to the individual players, who made 
the difficult adjustments with com- 
parative ease. 

McGuirk Lauds Charlie 

We were talking with Director 
of Athletics Warren P. McGuirk 
yesterday, and he made sure to 
mention that this "was the best 
coaching job Charlie O'Rourke has 
done since he's been here — without 
question." The record bears him 
out. 

Plaudits go to the UMass tackles 
who filled in serious holes in the 
line with a little brawn and a lot 
of heart. Fran Spriggs, Art Miller, 
and Joe Cardello were more im- 
portant than most folks realize. 
How About Next Year? 

The prospects for 1956 are very 
bright. In Tommy Whalen, Dick 
Wright, Charlie Mellen, and Roger 
Barous, the Redmen will have the 
section's top veteran backfield next 
fa'J. 

The schedule for next year has 
four games at home, and four 
away. The only change in the slate 
finds Boston University replacing 
Harvard. The 1956 schedule:

The season extends a week 
longer into November, and will 
find no games at Alumni Field 
until October 13. 

The Alumni Problem 

Prof. McGuirk also mentioned 
that our active alumni are begin- 
ning to take more interest in the 
student-athletes of their area. The 
Director of Athletics added that 
in future years the alumni will 
notify the university of any stu- 
dent athlete who appears to be 
representative of UM. In this way, 
the university will triple its "scout- 
ing" staff. 

Prof. McGuirk stated that one of 
the "inequalities" which hampered 
UM was the administrative policy 
of considering only Massachusetts 
residents for admission. However, 
he added that the Bay State was 
rich enough in material to pro- 
duce top grade football prospects. 

Much of the line material will 
return with severa 1 promising 
sophomore linemen. The frosh 
were rich enough at guard and 
tackle this fall to switch Red Good- 



win to fullback. Red a guard, 
gained valuable linebacking exper- 
ience this fall. 

Our Bobby Aronno 

Besides the seven players who 
will be answering their final 
whistle tomorrow, an eighth Red- 
man will be in his last game. Var- 
sity manager Bob Aronno is a 
senior and will retire after two 
full years as nursemaid to the 
school's greediest gang — the foot- 
ball team. 

All the coaches agree that Bob 
did a real championship job as 
manager for two years. We salute 
him as the most underrated man 
on the team, and the man who 
really "spoiled" his teammates. 

. . . And Farewell 

This is the last time Sports Fo- 
cus will appear in the Collegian. 
Not being of nautical nature, we 
have elected to desert the good 
ship Collegian. 

We do not worry about the Col- 
legian sports pages. Three hearty 
souls — Don Evans, J. Holowchuck, 
and John "Doc (90 yard)" Enos— 
will fill these shoes many times 
over. Undoubtedly they will con- 
tinue our Intramural all star 
teams, our Wellworth Award, and 
our Miss Football contest. 

They will enlighten these pages 



with many new ideas, too. It'll be 
fun to watch after two years of 
worry, and I, like 50% of the 
campus will turn to the Collegian 
sports page first. Goodbye, and 
thanks for reading this far.

Ten Commandments 
Listed For Hubsters 

The Boston School Committee 
has adopted what it calls com- 
mandments for pupils in grades 7 
through 12. 

The committee directed that the 
"commandments" be read bi-week- 
ly to all pupils of those grades, 
and a copy be posted in each class- 
room. 

The so-called commandments: 

Don't let your parents down. 
They've brought you up. 

Stop and think before you drink. 

Be smart, obey. You'll give or- 
ders yourself someday. 

Ditch dirty thoughts fast or 
they'll ditch you. 

Show - off driving is juvenile. 
Don't act your age. 

Pick the right friends to be 
picked for a friend 

Choose a date fit for a mate. 

Don't go steady unless you're 
ready. 

Love God and neighbor. 

Live carefully. The soul you 
save may be your own.

O'Rourkemen Look For Winning Season 



UMass Gridsters Hoping To Close Season 
With Triumph Over Wildcats Tomorrow 



by Don 

Seven UMass gridsters wil be 
playing their last game for the 
Maroon and Gold tomorrow after- 
noon when Charlie O'Rourke and 
Co. invade Durham, New Hamp- 
shire. 

Co-captains Don Johnson, and 
John McGowan, Cappy Kidd, Ha! 




FULLBACK HAL BOWERS 



Bowers, Ronnie Matheson, Buzz 
Johnson, and Joe Cardello are in 
their last year of eligibility. 

In their attempt to finish with 
a winning mark (the first winning 
record under Coach O'Rourke) the 
Redmen will face a tough New 
Hampshire club. The Wildcats have 
topped UMass 32-12 in their last 
two meetings. 

INH Not Too Potent 

This season, UNH has lost to 
UConn in the Yankee Conference, 
and has Lied Rhody and Maine. 
Out of Yan-Con play, the Wildcats 
have not been too potent, losing 
three and winning one. These los- 
ses include Deleware, 20-18; 
Springfield, 18-0; and Brandeis, 
20-14. 



Evans 

Their lone win was the opening 
game of the season against 
Bridgeport, 39-0. Thus their re- 
cord for the season is one win, 
four loses, and two ties. Not too 
impressive for a team that was a 
Yankee Conference power-house 
last year. 

Redmen Not Cocky 

The Redmen, though, are not 
looking for any pushover and are 
driving themselves to reach the 
peak they had gained last week 
before snow caused a postponment 
of their game. 

Saturday will find O'Rourke's 
charges almost in 100% physical 
condition with the only injury to

seniors will say 'fini' to their col- 
lege gridiron careers.

Otherwise the Redmen lineup will 
be the same as in weeks past. 

This means that Cappy Kidd 
and Dave Ingram will start at end. 
Bob DeValle and John O'Keefe are 
certain to see plenty of action 
however as the game progresses. 

Cardello At Tackle

trill draw the nod at the tackle

score his first 6-pointer for 
UMass. 

Ron Matheson will open at one 
guard slot, and will be paired with 
hustler Lou Varrichione. Buzz 
Richardson and Jim Dolan are set 
to throw their weight around also, 
should the occasion arise. 

The center spot is still a toasup 
between Buzz Allen and Ken Mac- 
Rao, but both boys are almost sure 
to see plenty of action.

In the Redmen hackficld. Tom 
(the Clutch) Whaien will most 
likely get the nod, but he wi 
share the signal-calling duties with 
Jack Noble. Injured Ronnie Blume 
won't see too much action.

knee is expected to be healed by 
Saturday, wiil start right half, 
and will be paired with Co-cap- 
tain Don Johnson at left half. 



Halfbacks Bill MacLean, and ace 
ground-gainer Charlie Mellen will 
also see plenty of action. 

Reserves To See Action 

Roger Barous will get the nod 
at fullback, While Hal (Bull) 
Bowers will be his first string 
backer-up. Backfield reserves who 
will pour continually into the 
game include Dick Berquist, John 
Cieri, Bill Mahoney, and Doc Enos. 

This is the final game of the 
season for UMass, and they will 
be out trying to give their coach 
his first winning season at the 
University. (

Sidelined most of the time with 
injuries, he nevertheless showed

many a gray hair on the head of 
Coach Charlie.

In concluding, McCune pointed
